I have noticed an almost complete lack of fruit on all five trees ( each of a different sub-species , if that’s the correct description ) , although I have found some flowers on one of the trees . Any ideas ? Fertiliser and irrigation has been available as and when needed and not to excess in either case .

Hi Dave, Are they new plants (i.e. 1-2 years old) in this case crops will increase over the coming years. They should be flowering in summer for picking from now onwards, I would be disappointed (as would you!!) if you don’t have a good crop next year. (you didn’t prune them between November and now?).

The trees are 15 -17 years old and were last pruned ( one side only ) in Feb. this year .

Hi Dave, If you have pruned them on the sunny side potentially you have pruned off this years fruit (as little fruit potentially will grow on the shady shade. If this gets done every year at the same time this will be the reason there is no fruit. Alternatively if they normally get trimmed after fruit Late Autumn early winter then the plants you have are most likely to be seedlings when they were planted and hence potentially don’t give you a lot of fruit (more planted for screening/shelter).

Thanks the Palmers Team
