Italian term or phrase: branchette fruttifere
I'm translating a study on various techniques for pruning peaches where I find repeatedly the term "branchette fruttifere". Any ideas how to translate the term in English? Here are some examples:
- "potatura minima con sfruttamento di un maggior numero di branchette fruttifere temporanee";
- "caratterizzato dalla permanenza di numerose branchette fruttifere (fino ad una decina per pianta)";
- "la sfruttamento di un maggior numero di branchette fruttifere temporanee (in numero di 6 – 10 per albero)".

Prune leading shoots of branches selected to extend the framework by half, to a bud facing in the desired direction. Select four good laterals to fill the framework and shorten these by a half. Prune any remaining laterals to four buds to form fruiting spurs.
