Training a Tardiva into a Tree

Oklahoma City, OK(Zone 7a)

I just bought a Tardiva from the 50% off rack at Lowe's. I would like to train it into a tree. How can I tell which is the main stem that will become the trunk?

Powder Springs, GA(Zone 7b)

Select the biggest, straightest one and prune the rest out. You may have to support it for a couple of years (or more) until it thickens.

PS - the PG is very easy to train into tree form but harder to find these days.
