Little Green Apples

Little Green Apples

My ancient apple tree continues to produce little green apples. Unfortunately, they are very sour, and the only animals that eat them are Little Monkey and Sparky the squirrel.

Something else has obviously had a go at them, as you can see small holes and sap leaking out of the apple at the back. Any ideas what causes this?

Even though most branches support apples now, there are still some only just coming into blossom.

So, you can see, as my previous post says: it is Sill alive.

    I never thought Little Monkey and squirrel like sour fruits. Do they think it’s too sour for them? I wish those green apples would taste sweet. If they were sweet, I guess it would be good for making apple pie…hehehe yumm πŸ˜› Thanks for sharing those beautiful pics with us Sci! πŸ˜‰

    Some kind of fruitflies I guess πŸ™‚ But the hole seems a bit bigger than its size I think … Though I don’t like apples much(only the crunchy,strong taste variety are ok for me),I loved it’s flowers πŸ˜€

    I think “little Green Apples” is a song here in the U.S. We used them for ammunition in “pitched” battles with other kids. They hurt like a b*&#h if you didn’t dodge in time. Then we’d eat a bunch and get roaring tummy aches.

    The apple wounds most likely are ‘coddling moth’ (Google it, they are fly like), if you cut open the apple, there will be a worm in it. Yuck. I’m not sure if you have different pests down there. .. That is my guess!
