Will apple/fruit trees produce fruit this year if I hard prune this year?

I have pruned 5 apple trees, one of them hard. The others I took half of the canopy. Will they produce apples this year or will I have to wait until next year?? image

    They will still produce fruit on any fruiting spurs or the tips of branches which you haven't pruned off.  The easiest way to tell is to look for buds.  Fat buds will become flowers and thin buds will become leaves.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
