Large transplanted apple tree with tiny hard apples

11 years ago

Last spring I bought a B&B 3" trunk caliper gravenstein. Last year it did not fruit as it came from a warmer climate and bloomed too early.

This year it bloomed well. About 20 apples set, and they are 1.5", turning red, and hard as wood.

It is also a bit lacking in foliage!

I tend to not fert AT ALL when establishing trees so they can send roots out to find what they need.

So it likely is a fert issue. Or transplant stress?

Any ideas? If fert- would small fruit/lack of leaves be a symptom of anything obvious, including micros?

Thanks, as always!
