How to Dwarf a Fruit Tree

How to Dwarf a Fruit Tree..
Dwarfed fruit trees take up much less space than standard trees in a dooryard orchard and are easier to care for and harvest. One of the simplest techniques of dwarfing a fruit tree is to use the open center method. In this method, judicious pruning practices limit the growth of the tree and also balance vegetative vigor with fruit production. Many varieties of fruit trees, including apples, pears, peaches, apricots, citrus and cherries, respond well to this method.
