If the dieback goes down to the ground Im afraid you will have to cut it right down to live wood and paint the cut with water based paint. It may eventually die but you can plant a new tree and it will grow big in no time at all. You could replace it with a grafted plant and get quality fruit in as little as 2 years.

Sure it would be viable. If you had a grafted tree, then growth from the bottom would be the rootstock and would not be suitable. But yours is a seedling, so the new growth would be the same as the main trunk.

Was this a grafted plant or from seed? Pictures would help. Keep planting 😀
