Branchless multi-leader pear tree

Published in Pears

A good knowledge of how pear trees grow and fruit, and how they differ from apple trees, is essential for managing a branchless multi-leader pear orchard. The branchless multi-leader tree is a good example of a controlled canopy with good distribution of sunlight. This poses new challenges for orchardists, hence the need for a manual that complements our popular manual: pear on Open Tatura.

Pear and apple pruning

Why train and prune young trees?
Because a young tree that is not pruned will become a shapeless tree; and a shapeless tree does not fill its space in the orchard and we cannot maximize light interception and light distribution.
