Honey Crisp Apple Trees Don’t Flower

I have 2 Honey Crisp apple trees that haven’t bloomed and are 5 years old. Do they need something? My other type trees are in full bloom right now and they are all in one field.

It may be a fertilizing issue, likely a nitrogen/phosphorus imbalance. Too much nitrogen in the soil will produce healthy growth but limit flowering and fruiting production. Try adding some more phosphorus-rich fertilizer or bone meal to the soil to encourage more flowering. Plants need phosphorus for flowering and fruiting. Without it, there will be no blooms and thus no fruit.

Newly Planted Honeycrisp Apple Tree

I bought a new Honey Crisp apple tree (semi-dwarf) 6 weeks ago. All the leaves have fallen off. It is still alive, but I am wondering if it will survive and what I can do to help it?
I planted 2 other apple trees at the same time – a Gala and a fruit cocktail tree. Both of them are doing fine (so far). Gala has new growth and the fruit cocktail doesn’t have new growth, but most of the leaves are still on it. Both of those trees look like they will make it. All 3 trees planted the same way – used fertilizer, watered, etc.

My Honey Crisp is just a stick now.

Apple Tree Question.

We bought a house with what we learned was an apple tree last year only bc it made a ton and I mean a ton of apples. we are not hundred percent sure what type it is but bought every apple in store to compare last year and best we can figure it is a honey crisp apple. as I said last year it made lots of apples, but my question is. This year it didn’t have a lot of blooms and is making apples but there are tiny, size of ping pong ball, and as of today may 31 some are already turning red. Is this normal? I understand that some apple trees don’t make apples every year. thank you Ryan

Yes, trees and their fruit production are effected by environment, chill hours, temperatures, growing conditions, pests, disease and pollination.
In the case of pollination, if you have only one tree, your tree is relying on pollination from a nearby tree. There may have been changes in that tree.

Many apples show blush and red colors on the fruit long before harvest, so your fruit may be acting quite normal.

I would also check with your local County Extension Office to see what apple trees are commonly planted in your area. They may be able to help with identification of your tree.
Here are some links that will help you learn about apple tree care requirements.
