What do you recommend for growing apples without the use of pesticides? I have lots of blossoms this year on my apple trees and would like some ideas on what to do to get good apples.

What have you tried that works?

My sister lives in California and has a wonderful Fuji apple tree! She just lets it grow natural and only harvests the apples the best apples. I don't believe she spray anything on it at all, but still has plenty to eat and gives away!

I leave mine natural too but the apples area always small, deformed and marked from whatever it is that eats them up... that's why I'd like to try something else this year and see if I can get a better result.

@headfullofbees, I checked the organic forum but I'm not sure where to find the information on fruit trees, specifically chili and garlic spray...?
