Do you remove all the first year fruit? Plants are currently about 2 feet tall with one having an abundance of fruit for size, while other has only 4. Thank you.

You should not harvest the first crop, but actually you should just remove the fruit as soon as you see it. When you first plant a fruit tree, it is best to let it focus on becoming established for the first year. When it grows fruit, its energy is split between fruit and root growth, rather than just focusing on root growth. Removing the fruit allows the tree to work on growing a big, healthy root system.
