Ten-year-old ‘Aroma’ on M26 rootstock were thinned when the first flower opened and at 20 mm fruitlet diameter to establish four different crop loads ranging from heavy crop load to fully deflowered. The planting distance was 1.4 × 4 m in single rows, shaped as slender spindle trees and limited to 2 m height by pruning. The manual-adjusted crop load treatments [0, 2, 4 and 6 fruits per cm trunk cross sectional area (TCSA)] were applied over three consecutive seasons on the same individual trees… CONTINUE READING
