Rethinking bagging apples
Last year was the first year I did any bagging. My trees are still young so I didn't really have much of a sample but the ones that were bagged were mealy and less flavorful. My only Calville Blan seemed to have scab under the bag. I have never seen scab except in pictures but it certainly wasn't edible.
Could my results be because there is much more intense sun here in the Mile High city? They literally seemed baked in their bags.
