What causes apples to rot on the tree?
Asked Jul 17, 2008, 09:23 AM
I have a large apple tree that is loaded with apples this year. However, they are getting rotten before getting ripe. They seem to be getting rotten from the center out. I have picked several that are just getting ripe and some of them have a spot that is soft, but doesn't look rotten. But when I cut them open the inside is pretty much rotten. I've never had this problem before and am stumped. Anybody have any idea what might be causing this?
