The effect of summer pruning on yield, fruit size and fruit quality of two apple cultivars



The effect of summer pruning on yield, fruit size and fruit quality of two apple cultivars



Norsk Landbruksforsking 3(3): 195-204



Summer pruning of the cultivars Summerred and Aroma, trained as free spindles, carried out on 1, 15 and 31 Aug. in three consecutive years, had no effect on yield and fruit size. Development of red colour in the fruits, especially those from the interior part of the canopy, was significantly enhanced by summer pruning, while the content of soluble solids was reduced. No consistent effect on fruit acidity could be found.
