Before Christmas our apple tree was loaded with fruit ... many more than previous years.  This week there were just a few apples left and lots of little ones on the ground.  I have no idea why they do this, after all the roadside trees seem to fruit beautifully every year and keep their fruit on.  I will be very surprised if any of these stay on long enough to grow to maturity.


  1. Joan,
    we had the same experience this year with the 'granny smith' just outside our bedroom window. It looked to the be most promising tree - most fruit dropped and was small. Even those we collected are not large or as good as previous years. It's a mystery!

    1. Glad to know it's not only me. Do you live in the area?
