The Q&A Archives: apple tree

Question: Why do my apples fall off the tree before they ripen? We planted a Cortland & a Machintosh right next to each other about 15 years ago. We've never gotten much fruit from them.

Answer: Your trees are compatible pollinizers so that's not the problem with poor fruiting. If the trees are otherwise healthy I'm afraid I'm stumped and don't have an answer for you. Wish I could shed some light on the problem!
