The Q&A Archives: Stop tree from producing

Question: Can I keep my crab apple tree from producing fruit? We like the shade but hate the fruit dropping in the yard.

Answer: Jerry Baker's catalog has a product that is helpful, it is called "Fruit Eliminator". It has a chemical that when applied to plants it places them under stress, they produce ethylene gas, and drop blossom. Thus, no fruit. You can order the catalog through 1-800-888-0010.
