i planted some small fruit trees last fall and a couple are trying to bear fruit already. one is a pear tree that surprised me with 5 pears growing already. it's so small though i think the pears are going to break the branches they're on. should i go ahead and pull them off? maybe let it get a little bigger and see what happens next year? the other is a peach tree which also has fruit, maybe about 10-11. in this case though, they're about the size of big marbles and haven't gotten any bigger for maybe a month or so. no worry about branch breaking this time (unless they take off and start growing later or something). i'm just wondering why they seem to have stopped getting bigger. maybe the tree is too new and the root system can't support the fruit growth yet? i also just planted a cherry tree maybe a month ago, but i think it's gonna die. i've planted trees in both spring and fall and done ok up until this. i don't know why the cherry tree is dying. the only connection i can guess is we had two huge rains two days in a row and right after that it just started wilting and now the leaves are turning brown. i may try again if the big box stores get cherry trees again in the fall. i'm just wondering if there's something different cherry trees need done to them. thanks.
