    1. Depending on the age of the tree when you get it, it usually takes 3-4 years for the tree to start really producing. My husband takes care of our fruit trees. He does prune them in the late winter -early spring to let more light in and get better air circulation (important when it is hot and humid). Unfortunately, we do spray as well….I know that is not the natural way, but one finds that there are many pests and diseases that are hard to keep at bay. Good luck with your trees! If you want more specific information, check with your extension office – they offer a wealth of solid, trustworthy information!
