The Q&A Archives: What is happening to my sugar apple trees?

Question: I planted two sugar apple trees 3 mths. ago.They are growing fine but every litle fruit turns brown and falls. What I need to do?

Answer: There are only two conditions that will cause poor fruit set in your sugar apples. Drought, and dry, windy conditions during flowering. While you can't control the weather, you can make sure your trees get adequate moisture during dry spells. Water deeply once each week when rainfall is sparse. Aside from the above, there's really no reason for your trees not to set fruit. Good luck with your trees!
