New fruit trees

Asked October 4, 2016, 4:06 PM EDT

I planted 2 peach and one pear tree last fall in my smallish space. I notice this yea that they all had at least 2 plant stems in each pot and both stems have leaved out. Should I trim these down to one trunk for each plant Q

Prune the fruit trees to one single stem. Allowing more than one stem to develop will produce a bush with weak crotches that will split with the weight of the fruit.
