Brown Rot Control
I planted some trees that I've since learned are not the best trees for my conditions. Several of them, however, are growing really well and look to have lots of flower buds this year. For instance, I planted a Bing Cherry but will have a real battle with brown rot. Do you think the following idea has a chance, or would trying to keep the fruit as dry as possible not make any difference? Here is my idea: Hook up a weather proof fan to a small solar panel. Set up the fan to blow on the tree and remove fruit that is not in the air path. Thin the fruit in the air path. Turn the fan on a just let it go all summer. I'm not looking to get tons of fruit from these trees but would love to get a little bit.
