Why isn't my Egremont Russet apple tree setting fruit? Its a young tree, been in my garden about 3 years. It lives next to a Bramleys Seedling, Katy, James Grieve, 4 more apple trees in the allotment 50 feet away and an orchard 300 feet away. It flowers beautifully, same time as the others but there are very few fruit forming for the second year running, maybe 3 on a tree 6 feet tall. The others are covered in tiny apples. Why?
