Any frost reports from NE Bradford co.? All our apples were in full bloom 2 weeks ago when I was at camp. Hate to go a 3rd year with no apples
Camp is at 1500-1700ft. Most of the apples in the low spots had some apples. All the ones up higher did not. I also suspect some different strains of apples bloom later than others. We did not plant any of these, all wild.Your apples are safe from frost. It would take a major freeze now to destroy the apple crop. My apples were in bloom around the same time here in Centre county, I sprayed my first cover spray Monday night. Bees and bugs were all over the blossoms while they were in bloom so there should be a good pollination; we'll know in a couple weeks how good it was when I start to thin out my apple trees.
Interesting you had no apples last year, hunting up in NY they were so thick it was like skating on marbles in some areas.
NorthPotter do you word on any frost east of you around the Mills area? We are at about 2400 hundred foot elevation. when we were up last time our apple blossoms were just starting to come out.
