Apple tree

My latest apple tree that I bought last year has a mass of blossom on it and I am afraid that if too many turn into apples the young branches will snap, should I take some of the young apples off ? They are Bramleys so they have the potential to be large apples.

    I agree with bugsy, wait for the june drop which might be in July this year image then thin later if you need to. Check out Stephen Hayes' videos on youtube for some great ideas and encouragement.
