The tree is two metres high & in full flower. A number of small limbs have Anthronose, which I have sprayed. Can I prune diseased these limbs now or best wait till after fruiting ?

The earlier you can prune these, the better it will be for your tree. The concern for spreading the disease far out-weighs the need for it to be proper timing. You should, also, apply a good helping of wettable sulfur to the soil, as this will stop the issue in its tracks.
