Worker pruning nectarines

Pruning Nectarines

Sometimes too many leaves grow on a tree blocking the sunlight from reaching the fruit. To solve this, farmers prune off unneeded branches so the sun can reach the nectarines. This is beneficial because when the sun hits the nectarine it causes the nectarine to grow sweeter and ripen, also known as Sun Ripening. Yum! 🙂
