Apple Problems
« on: September 03, 2015, 19:20 »
Hi All,
I have a three year old Apple tree which this year has given it best crop.
However most of my crop has some sort of disease on them making the Apples inedible.
Can you please advice as to what you think it is and what will I ned to do next season to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Photos attached.

The first picture looks like bitter pit to me

The second looks like pest damage.  Most likely maggots in the pips burrowing out, but it could be wasps burrowing in.  If you cut an apple like that open and there is muck and rubbish all round the seeds, its the first of the 2.
