How do you know which variety needs which type of pruning?

From Tom Spellman of Dave Wilson Nurseries (see interview here) – watch your vines for a year or two … if the fruit grows on the base of the branch then it is needs spur pruning and if the fruit grows at the end of a branch then it is a cane pruning variety.
