The Content Of The Article:

A fruit tree goes through three main states. A juvenile phase: it produces mainly wood to form its normal framework. An adult phase: the production of wood stabilizes and the tree produces the maximum of fruit. Last phase: the tree can no longer replace the dying wood, and the fruit production decreases.
The fruiting size aims to slow down the flow of sap, which naturally tends to go up the tree, and channel it to the fruit production organs.
