Q.We Have A 15+ Yr Old Shirt Plum Tree That Always Drops Her Fruit When They Are About The Size Of Green Peas. It Has A Lovely Round

Zone Zone 8 | Anonymous added on March 11, 2022 | Answered

ed shape shape and has thousands of blossoms every year. The yellow fruit is sweet, but except for its fourth or fifth year, has not prodeuced more than a handful of mature plums. There are some that get a bit yellow, higher up where we can’t reach, but hav e insect holes by the time they fall off. Any thoughts? We live in North Carolina, zone 8. Not much freezing weather. Our Apple trees (2 Rome) have lots of fruit, but they usually have bug holes, too. We’re retired and it’s hard to spray, but would it help to spray what we can reach? And if so, what and when?
