Fruit Tree Study–Part 2

4 Comments

The fruit trees are in full leaf  with miniature fruits on them.  I’m hoping we will be able to make use of some of them in their fully formed size in spite of the birds, insects and anything else that will be competing with us for food.

I grouped the fruit trees by type and tried to get a sample of each one with leaves, buds, petals and fruit.  They didn’t all bloom at the same time and not in the order that I thought they would.  The trees on the south side of the garden bloomed later than the same ones on the north side.  My favorite tree is the Crabapple with such an incredible amount of  beautiful blossoms.  I don’t have many photos of the fruit, due to many factors, but I hope to get out soon to capture the mini-fruit before they get too large.

  1. Wonderful documentation! Interesting about north blooming before south…same watering conditions?

    • Thanks Anita! The trees all get the same amount of water-from the sky. Bruce thinks since the south side is lower in elevation that it stays colder. A friend who lives on the east side of Roseburg has flowers that all bloom about 2-4 weeks before us.

  2. Great collection of photos for each type of fruit tree; suggest you append the generic name with the variety so “Black” becomes “Black Walnut”; “Smyrna” becomes “Smyrna Quince” . It will make them easier to find later when searched. You might even want to look up the formal name.
