Prune a Vase Shape Fruit Tree

With the open vase system, the leader is removed and 3-5 major limbs are developed as the basic shape of the tree. This training system allows for light penetration into the tree. This tree pruning form is recommended for stonefruit (peaches, nectarines, apricots and plums), feijoa and citrus trees.
