Granny Smith help to many apples, hurting tree
I just bought a house last year and on the land it had to granny apple trees. Well last year they did not produce very much at all, so i made sure to pull off all the apples that did bloom and water it really good throught the spring. Both of them bloom alot this year and i did not even notice at first cuz i had a lot going on this summer, went out for a walk to see my trees and them have way over produce so much the branches are bent over and touching the ground some of the branches are spitting off from the trunk. My trees are in bad shapeand the apples are not full ripe yet so what do i do?? i know nothing about this i'm a city girl. I think some of the problem is i did not prune the tree last year cuz i did not know i needed to. so any help would be great!!
