low enough that you can easily pick all of your fruit. You trim the top height every spring, which will help to encourage lower growth. Then keep an eye on on it during the growing year; cut any upright shoots back to keep juices flowing to the lower growth. There's no law that says you have to let a tree grow to it's full height.
