June Drop In July
June is usually the time when the apple trees start to naturally thin the number of apples they produce, creating more space for the remaining fruit to grow to maturity. This year 'June Drop' is occurring later than usual and has begun in July. As you walk amongst the trees, especially the larger trees, there are a large number of fruits that have been shed but there are many more still on the trees, lets hope they stay attached for team to pick in the autumn for juicing.
