Apple's growing on young tree

United Kingdom Gb

I have a healthy crop of apples growing on my trees which are around 2 years old, unfortunately because the branches are still young they cannot bear the weight of the fruit and are being pulled down towards the ground. Should I remove the fruit or can this damage the tree in any way?



I would take off a couple from each cluster - this shpuld put less stress on the tree and allow the apples to grow bigger.
