|We have an apple tree that produces alot of apples. However, by the Fall they are all off the tree. What could be wrong and how can we correct this?
|Apple trees go through a natural thinning process, usually in June, when excess apples are shed. We generally recommend you further thin the apples, removing all but one in each cluster. This allows the remaining fruit to grow larger and your tree will have the energy required to bring those fruits to maturity. If all the apples are falling off your tree it's either a pollination problem (you need two different apple cultivars for cross pollination to occur) or it's a water stress problem. Hope you determine just what might be going on with your tree so you can eventually have a decent harvest!|
