* the tree is one year old when bought, but three years old now and has a lot of growing to do. First year after planting you should remove the fruit buds to promote growth rather than fruit production. The second year after planting (I.e. Now) you hold your fingers crossed and hope for a small crop, too many isn’t a good thing for the same reason, you want the tree to grow. I wanted more than three apples, but hey, I’ll be swamped in eating apples in the coming years.
