How long that wood takes to dry or reach EMC depends upon you average annual temps & humidity, plus thickness and length. Could be couple to six months to reach EMC. Outside shed is fine if protected from weather and direct sunlight for storing wood. Word of caution already mentioned about spitting & cracking with most fruit woods, but we never really know until have experience with particular species. Fruit wood famous for doing that during turning or storing.

Right now don’t really want much heat just need air circulation for MC to evaporate from the wood! Heat can be a blessing or a curse; heat enables wood to dry to fast after freshly cut.

Good luck with it.
