Q.No Fruit On Trees

Zone 53959 | p.j.farber@gmail.com added on June 26, 2020 | Answered

Hi! Our peach and pear trees have not produced fruit for 7 years now. One newer pear tree had lots of blossoms thus spring but no fruit forming. The neighbors had a huge black walnut tree cut down last year. Could that be the problem?

Actually, now that the tree is cut down, you may start to see fruit and flowers in the coming years.

Walnut toxicity will affect many tree and plants. The chemical is called juglone, and is present to some degree in most nut trees. The Black Walnut is the most notorious for damaging other plants.
