Recommended thinning on all fruits for best flavor/sweetness?

13 years ago

Just wanted to see what you recommend for the various types of fruit trees/plants as far as thinning young fruit (about 4 weeks after they start growing) to help maximize flavor and sweetness (at harvest) of the following fruits. Here is what i have gathered reading various threads:

Peaches/Nectarines- leave 1 every 6 " of branch (thin off 90%)

plum/apricot/pear- leave 1 every 6"

Apples leave 1 every cluster

cherry ?


blueberry- thin off half

blackberry/raspberry- thin off half

grapes- ?

kiwi- ?

other fruits requiring special thinning?
