Apple tree


By anujag


My espalier apple tree looked beautiful last week. Today it has already lost some of the flowers.

Even a few years ago I was naive enough to think that most of the flowers would become fruits. Alas, most don’t! :)

Should be good crops this year with them all flowering a bit later, no frost to wreck the blossom.

My apple tree is still in full bloom....I´m just hoping that we will get some apples on it this year...last year it produced about 2-3....the year before that it was so full we couldn´t eat them all ourselves and were giving them away to friends.

Even in my small espalier I got about twenty five apples two years ago, Rogi. But last year, it was four apples! Yes, hoping it will be better this time.

No blossom on mine yet, just leaves, shows the difference being so far North. Your tree looks lovely and healthy, hope you have an excellent crop.
