Fruit Trees

Post by PATRICE IN IL on Wed May 28, 2014 11:06 am

Has the crazy weather affected your fruit trees?

I don't think I'm going to be getting much off my trees this year as my existing peach and apple trees did not flower this Spring. As a matter of fact, I may lose half of my peach tree as it isn't even leafing out. Sad The only fruit I see is on the new peach tree I just planted, it was flowering when I bought it. It has probably 2 dozen marble sized fruits on it. I might take a look at the him improvement stores and see if I can pick up another peach tree add to the orchard in case I lose my original peach tree.

So any suggestions to maybe save my tree? I'm planning on fertilizing it and mulching it heavily to help give it a boost.

The sub-zero winter temps killed one of Dads grapevines, and the other one doesn't look very good. As long as the roots are healthy the tree should pull through. The problem with dwarf and semi dwarf trees is the grafted root stock that stunts the growth of the tree. If it is more than 10 years old it has likely just reached the end of its life.

I lost both my peach tree (at the old house) and the fruit cocktail tree last year.  My trees were not total victims of the weather however.  They got a bark splitting virus that I was fighting for a couple of years.  After the virus weakened them, I think the drought finished them off.

Keith the tree is only 3 or4 years old. It was starting to leaf out when we had a few days of low thirties that stunted the tree. I'm hoping if I feed it well, it will come back.
Unfortunately it has trunk damage from when a sheet of plywood fell over and scraped the bark all the way down the tree. Sad

if you cover the wound with wax and tape it might scar over, if it is still green and wet.

That happened a few years ago and it healed over, but I'm sure it weakened the tree.

An update on the progress of my newly planted this past Spring fruit trees. They all are doing very well.

My 3 year old dwarf Braeburn that I thought I was going to lose, has taken off now that the huge Maple is gone. So hopefully I'll get some apples from the Royal Empire and the Braeburn next year. The Royal Empire has been established for at least 7 years now and has provided apples for at least 3 years prior to this year. Due to a late frost I didn't get any apples or peaches. My newly planted peach tree had fruit on it but the peaches themselves developed oddly and then the squirrels got the fruit. Sad
