Same tree, this year.
No apples. No apples on most of the apple trees in Michigan. Reports says Michigan lost 90% of its apple crop to our late winter thaw followed by a freeze. I never even saw the blossoms - the tender buds died before they were fully open.
We have 3 apples trees and a ton of crab trees of different types. So I did a search. In my front yard, I found the one and only crabapple of the year:
It's not a pretty one, either. I'm not even sure how it formed - doesn't there have to be cross-pollination with another blossom? If so, there must have been another blossom, and now at least one more crabapple somewhere in SE Michigan.
We'll feel these repercussions for a year, and not just in higher prices for apples shipped here from someplace where Nature didn't go a bit crazy last February. The deer and birds munch on crabapples all winter. I don't know what will replace them.
