The June Apple Drop phenomenon is not uncommon. Apparently, an apple tree can tend to over-produce in June. The answer to the problem is to remove all the small apples except for the healthiest, largest ones on the tree; this will use the tree's resources for the strongest fruits.There is also a suggestion that a dose of potash in the winter is good for restoring the tree for the following spring.
