With large well-established apple trees it is seldom practicable to do much fruit thinning and in any case the natural June drop helps quite a lot with these With trained trees however in ivluch fruit-bearing growth and fruit-bud production must be evenly balanced allowing a tree to carry too heavy a crop may well upset the apple-cart Fruiting puts a very big strain on the tree: if the strain is excessive growth is checked fruit-bud production ceases and the habit of biennial bearing is automatically encouraged Besides which if the crop is very large a big percentage of the fruits are sure to be small and of poor quality Once the June drop is finished a good rule-of-thumb method with apples is to reduce the clusters to one per cluster the best after removing the central king apple (as shown above) which although the largest may be the poorest keeper When thinning is completed the fruits should average not less than bin apart Fruit thinning is most important for late-keeping apples (and pears): with the early to midseason cooking apples it can he delayed until the thinnings are big enough for use feeding party was in progress it moved across a colony of ants All fed on the ants

but almost nothing done to mount performances of his music An honourable exception has been the BBC' Third Programme where one of Brian's leading champions the composer Robert Simpson has made himself
