Pruning In Frosty Places

Categories: Fruit Growing

This appears to be a frosty section. Pruners are at work continuously

from the time the apricots are harvested until spring arrives. From what

is said in "California Fruits?" I judge late winter pruning would be

best far apricots and peaches. Am I correct?

In frosty places it is often desirable to prune rather late, because the

late-pruned tree usually starts later than the early pruned, and thus

may not bloom until after frost is over.
