My Granny Smith Apple Tree is Blooming in October?

2011-10-25 11.10.28

I think my tree is confused. It did NOT bloom in spring when it’s neighboring Crimson Gala tree bloomed and I was worried because these two trees were supposed to be able to pollinate each other. This is only the third autumn it’s been planted in my backyard. Will it bloom this coming spring? Will it try to set fruit after the blooms drop during the winter? Sad smile If you are reading this blog, has this ever happened to you?

    Maybe the Granny is a southern hemisphere type that thinks it’s still in Australia or wherever it originated from. If you had a cold spell, maybe it thinks it’s spring now. In SoCal, my Anna apple sets fruit twice a season. Your tree’s teasing you!
