Size of Apples
This summer has been exceptionally wet here in the UK, but we have had very little sunshine.
In view of all the rain that has fallen, I would expect the apples on my trees to be much larger than usual. (They have had plenty of rain to swell the fruit.) However, the reverse is the case: My apples are much smaller than usual.
I am intrigued by this, since I would have expected them to be much larger than usual. Why should this be so?
