An aborist or tree removal expert will definitely know the things about a particular tree and the fruit. When they will grow and when to take it out from the trees.

Besides mom complaining on-and-off about less production (well the tree IS much smaller compared to before), I am really happy with what I have after nearly 6 years. Thanks to everyone's great tips and my friend's generosity with scions.

This year reed had less production, poor tree probably tried to distribute energy.
Jan Boyce on the other hand is fully loaded and cracked much less.
Sharwill has exactly one fruit, not able to keep up with other varieties at all.
I trimmed off Mexicola's large branch and left only a little bit of it, no fruit formed from flowers.
Good news, I finally grafted hass last spring and it shoots for the sky, successfully filling the center void. Let's see if it will flower soon.
I also grafted 2x gem branches but they are really shaded by hass thus barely growing.
Looking for scionwoods: loquat, cherimoya, jujube, chocolate perssimon

I see you understand this. It happened to me that the tree stopped letting its leaves altogether. Apparently I am that still a gardener, I took care of the tree incorrectly. I decided that there was no point in saving and that I needed to dig it up. So remove, to plant a new one. The professionals from Tree Service Antioch CA helped a lot. Before that, I cut down a tree, but then I realized that I could not cope with it myself. Now a nut is growing in that place. Everything is done for the best. If this happens, it is better to immediately contact those who are good at it.

Congratulations on the success of converting your tree over the years. The Fuerte will continue to get larger and dominate the other varieties even more unless it is thoughtfully pruned.

You could severely prune back the Fuerte and then topwork the apical tips with Sharwil or another variety.
