I just found out about thinning which I did not do. The multiple of fruit caused a branch to break. How do I repair this? There

were about 70 apple on this one branch. I have alot of apples that fell and are still on the branch. Can the premature apple be eaten?

It will not taste good, and may upset your stomach. I would not consider these edible, and they probably won’t ripen much off of the tree.

If there is some skin hanging, and the branch is still attached, then you may be able to save it.

Usually, it will die off. Should this be the case, cut the limb fully.
