They can be harvested from mid-May through the end of October (Figure 1). However, because of differences in their requirements of weather and soil and in their susceptibility to pests, some fruit plants grow better than others.
Download: The Vertical Axis System: A Training Method for Growing Apple Trees
New apple cultivars often command higher prices than some older cultivars such as Jonathan, Red and Golden Delicious. If a grower can bring a new apple into production while it is in demand, a new cultivar can be more profitable to produce than an older one. High-density orchard systems of more than 500 trees per acre, such as the vertical axis system, can be used to produce fruit in the second or third year after planting. In contrast, low-density orch…

All the woody parts of the tree from the buds and twigs to the trunk and roots are susceptible to borer attack. Most borers are attracted to trees that are weakened through drought, injury or disease, but some borer species can successfully attack healthy, vigorous trees.
Once borers have infested a tr…
