My husband has just harvested what little apples we got off of our tree.I tried to make applesauce and was very disappointed with the results.They are very dry and tasteless.Has anyone else found their apple crop lacking?
I was once in Hawaii and when I spoke to a person about apples there they said that you can’t grow apples in a climate that does not get a good hard winter.Could this be the reason for my tasteless apples?

My neighbour has two beautiful huge apple trees in his backyard and last year they had so many apples that they let us take bags full to make applesauce which we froze and are still using for applesauce cakes.This year they had no apples at all on those trees because of our late frost after they had bloomed.How sad it is to look at those trees with no apples.Let’s hope next year will be better.

I’m in the Okanagan Valley and the fruit sits and rots, miles and miles of fruit trees where the farmer doesnt get paid enough, to harvest and ship them.

There is an apple tree in my back yard, almost tipping over there are so many apples and yesterday afternoon I picked enough to make apple crisp. What a pain to peel enough to make a dish of the crisp and I remembered my mothers apple peeler, old antique thing……..oh I miss it.

Today I suffer from heart burn due to my over indulgence of eating the whole tray.

-- just one more rock, and the garden is done ; )

Once in our storage facility in Gold Coast once had an issue with one of our clients. The client has accidentally stored three boxes of apples in the facility. It was labeled incorrectly. Good thing the client came over after a week to check thru the storage facility and he realized that he has stored degradable items in his unit. He apologized profusely, and paid extra to have the section of the unit cleaned.

This may seem overly obvious but I am going to assume that both Eric Shawn Bosloor and CameronRobertson are some type of spammer bots that should probably be deleted from the site.

Just sayin’

P.S. Yeah, they be spammer bots…..checkin’ their profiles makes it pretty plain.
