For the person who arrived here looking to prevent biennial bearing: systematically remove about 1/2 of the young fruit (young-young – do it early) during a bearing year. It may take the tree several years to straighten itself out. Thinning the fruit or the flowers if you’re ambitious is the way to go. During off years, do not thin.
The fun of awaking at 5am has waned a bit. Can’t drink too much coffee because I am about to be in the car for an hour. It’s going to be hot today. Hold me.
