I have two young apple trees and last year was the first year for them to bear fruit and we had a couple dozen small apples on each of the two trees. This year the east tree only had a handful of apples but the west tree was loaded with big crisp apples. Most of them we a half pound by weight. We have not sprayed and we had a little superficial damage to the skin on some of the apples but really none to the flesh.
Here the tree has gentle pressure to straighten up the tree gradually. All of those apples have since been harvested and enjoyed.
