I've been working slowly pruning away at my anonas. I usually bring them down from 10-12' to 7 or 8'. I also prune my jackfruit and tip my achacha. here are pix

Slowly working towards my cherimoyas. Looks like a good new growth year for mangos that are not fruiting or that will rest.

Custard apple, and mountain soursop already with emerged leaves, 3 per bud mostly...

Is it too late to prune? And those prunings are giving some good scion cuttings, if one likes?

Not too late I've had anonas that dropped 90% of the leave and were budding still prune them. Thank for your offer

I followed Franks advice and pruned my Biriba and Ilama in February.  They are both totally naked and tip pruned.  I am waiting on new growth and just now getting growth buds developing!
