I was told to thin my fruit or the fruit wouldn’t get large. I have the stone fruit variety. Any hints to taking care of it would be greatly appreciated.

The first fruits on your Fruit Salad Tree will appear anywhere between six and 18 months. Remove these fruits when they're the size of a pea to allow your tree to use the energy to grow and develop a sturdy framework, which needs to be ahead of any fruit production.
