    Whyever would you want to remove pretty blossoms? Just leave them on the trees and enjoy the lovely sight.

    I would leave them, and enjoy the fruit when it comes along :) good luck!
  • Who told you to remove them????? No! Leave them alone! Let nature do its thing, those trees will produce a lot of fruit, so be ready . . .

    Definitely leave them. The fragrance alone is fantastic! Enjoy them and the forthcoming fruit! I wish I had enough sun in my yard to plant fruit trees. Too many huge mature trees in our and neighbors yards to get enough sun for them. Last owners of this house tried to give a pine tree a go and it died a slow death. We took it out a year after we moved in.

    If you want to eat fruit, don't touch. The blossoms produce the fruit. Whoever told you to take the blossoms off is nuts!!!
