What do you mean by enormous? Five feet? Twenty? If they are on a dwarf rooting stock it depends which stock it is for their eventual size. Depending on what variety of fruit you are growing, follow the usual pruning advice for that fruit and keep them restricted to the size you want in any case.

What kind of fruits, Roy, and what kind of rootstock?
Note that some "dwarfing" rootstocks don't dwarf the trees as well as advertised. Also, there is the possibility that whoever you bought them from sent you the wrong thing.
