Where does the idea of picking flowers off come from ?

Many times I’ve seen members talk about picking the flowers of their trees to encourage growth or for some other reason.
Where did this idea come from ? Who encourages it ?
For my trees it makes no difference.
If they are properly cared for and fertilized , they grow healthy and leaf out properly as nature intended.
That’s why I let them bloom as much as they can. In fact it’s the blooms that smell great and fruit that tastes good.
