Fan with heart branch


Fan with central branch


In the fan with a central branch, the basic branches are distributed filling from the base, with middle branch. With this fan shape, no attention is paid to symmetry.


Specific Applications

With stone fruit , one trunk is often kept ( tree shape ).

With fig , multiple trunks are often kept ( shrub ).


A fan with a middle branch is easy to manage (requires little knowledge), but cannot really be regarded as an espalier because symmetry is often lacking. Fairly good productive.

Recommended for frost-sensitive fruits (such as figs ) against a south wall.

Also suitable for stone fruits, but the fan without heartbranch works better.

Not suitable for pome fruits (pear, apple).
