Apple and Plum are blooming in Sept.

I know something is wrong. But they are both blooming! I assure you, I am not crazy! I think we inherited this house on a short sale, and they have been neglected, so maybe they just need to fruit?

We harvested tons of apples, and a few plums. But now they bloom?

Par for the course in warm climates and the tropics, you'll get a smaller crop that may or may not mature fully. In the tropics they have similar crops.

My Honeycrisp is blooming. Planted as a Mother's Day gift. Healthy and well cared for. About 5' tall with a 1" diameter trunk in central Kentucky.

Hy first year Harrow Sweet pear (which yielded one pear) had a single flower appear in late August. I pinched it off, but found it surprising, as nothing else in the yard (pear, apple, peach, plum, etc) has flowered in August.
