Thinning apple fruits
You'll notice that many of the little apples on your apple tree will fall off during the month of June. Don't worry, it's the natural way the tree gets rid of surplus fruits. Those left may still be numerous and small. If you want larger, but slightly fewer fruits, thin out each cluster by removing the central ‘king fruit'. This is no loss as it won't grow properly, and it leaves the others to develop well.
