For this reason alone I'm really hoping my apple trees yield good apples this year. Last year was kind of weird. We got good cherries. One peach tree yielded a bunch then before they ripened the entire tree withered and died. I had to cut it down this year. The other peach tree withered but stated to regrow so I need to cut the dead part of this year. Both Apple trees yielded but never fully ripened. In about another 6 or 7 years we should also have pecans too. That tree is really starting to take off now too. I'm thinking a good pair tree or two would be nice since they grow well around here.
