We have three apple trees--Winesap, Pink Lady, and Yellow Delicious. All have small quarter-sized apples on them, that have been thinned.
Big decision, do we spray, and with what. We'd love to have apples without bug damage, or some disease problem, but haven't the slightest idea how to go about it.
All advice will be greatly appreciated.
I'll be posting a "help with pears" thread later :confused:

Maybe can help with pears:) cause I've never been successful growing apples in East Texas.

Pears, on the other hand, grow very well here producing bug free fruit reliably every year. I have one tree that's over fifty years old and produces every year without fail.

Apples...I wish you luck!

Tractor Supply has a spray concentrate simply called Orchard Spray. This is my first year using it so I don’t know yet how effective it is. I was late getting it sprayed but I didn’t want to use it while the bees were on the flowers.
