Most apricot varieties are pruned using the same basic principals. An apricot tree is one of the most difficult of all fruit trees to prune. It does what it likes and is difficult to get into a uniform shape. So let’s have a look at apricot tree pruning.

Apricot trees can be grown in a variety of ways.

Apricots are only pruned while they are in flower.

It’s very important for the pruners to identify the structural limbs and the bearing units.

Please note that our pruning programmes give the general theory related to the pruning activity. Adapt the information to your own situation and chat to a consultant who can advise you in your orchard if you have further queries.
