The effects of crop load on fruit quality and mineral content were studied on apple trees (Malus domestica L. Borkh. cv. Cox’s Orange Pippin) by comparing fruit from heavily cropping trees with those from trees with naturally light crops or those which had been flower thinned. In light and thinned treatments, flower bud density was less, and fruit set greater than in heavy treatments. The heavy cropping trees had a higher proportion of fruiting spurs with only one fruit. When spurs with fruit… CONTINUE READING
