A lot of apple trees are so over-loaded that their drooping to the ground, just like this one behind me here.
Paul Beck from Lowes Garden Center here in Minot says this is because apple trees tend to take a little bit of a break every other year.
Last year, there were apples of course, but not nearly as many.
He says one way to avoid such a big break is to avoid over-treating your apple trees.
 
(Paul Beck/Nursery Manager, Lowe’s Garden Center) “So if you’re out fertilizing your apple trees all the time and you’re watering the heck out of them, they may not produce as well as they would if you just kind of let them be.”

Beck says the best time to pick is right now.
The low temperatures at night make for a sweet and crisp apple in the following days.
