The Golden Russets got good pollination and are looking great so far! With the rains the fruit is sizing up well. We are hoping the rains will taper off a bit, as the trees need sunshine and the trees a happier when their feet can dry our a bit.
The bloom was quite heavy this year and we had many pollinators. Because of that we have a good fruit set and good possible crop. A couple of our varieties didn’t set as much fruit as expected (Chestnut crab and Calville Blanc d’Hiver in particular) and we are not quite sure why. There was some very wet and cold weather during pollination which may have had an impact.
