I need to prune this tree before spring 2014. Advice welcome re pruning.
Season records for this tree
Spring blossom: 16 April
Harvest: 1st week September 20kg / 44lbs
2.0m / 6.7ft high 2.0m / 6.7ft wide vigorously pruned in late winter 2014 and continued to cull apples starting late spring thru mid summer. Resulting harvest was wonderful - over a bushel of apples of substantial size. Just right for eating, quite juicy. Wish the Akane was a better keeper, but they are wonderful, slightly tart, firm, juicy sweet apples for several weeks after harvesting.
Harvest: 1st week September
2.5m / 8.3ft high 3.0m / 10.0ft wide Love this semi draft akane. Purchased small five years ago. Great Harvest starting 3rd season.
