Fruit Removal

No chemicals are currently labeled for removing fruit other than apples and crabapples.

Fruit from peaches, apricots, plums and pears can be removed by shaking the tree when fruit are approximately one (1") inch in size. Shake limbs with short strokes. To remove fruit, branches can be "hit" with a plastic baseball bat. Use carefully.
