Cot N Candy Aprium

All of the fruit is cracking at the top and barely hanging on the stem. Is this normal for Cot n Candy aprium? Fruits are very good just not very pretty.

Looks to me like too much water. Nothing you can do about it now but next year you might try watering less. Cot-N-Candy can be very good but not when it is over watered.

I was thinking that also but I only water once a week (since about 6 weeks ago) now that temps are up (80 -90's). I let the drip system go for around 5 hours. 7 drips at 1gph about 3 foot diameter around the trees. Trees are young 2 years or less. DO you think that is too much? Still learning all this fruit biz!

7 X 5 = 35 Gallons is excessive IMO. I am in Santa Clarita where the temps are simular. I water mine about every 3 days with about 5 gallons. It is about the same age. This year I got about 25 great fruit on mine.

Do you net for birds or squirrels?

Frank, "netting for squirrels"? These is no such netting :-) Birds yes, but not squirrels or rats. They simply chew right through it.

Sounds like I will be changing up my watering for next year. Thanks for your help. Trial and error right! :).
