Feed Moldy Fruit to Your Fruit Trees

Once in a while, we forget to eat a certain fruit or the fruit becomes moldy. Instead of tossing the fruit in the trash, you could cut the fruit into pieces and feed to your fruit trees. The bees will suck the natural sugars from the fruit giving them energy to go about pollinating your trees and helping to set fruit. This will result in your fruit trees being healthy, strong, and bountiful. You do not necessarily have to use moldy fruit; the core of apples, pineapples, and any fruit waste works just as great. Do not let your moldy fruit or fruit cores go to waste!


Below is a moldy grapefruit. In the last photo, you can see a pineapple core that has been left out for a week now.

I haven't read on the subject, lately. At one time, in the recent past, there was grave concern about the welfare of the honeybee. I don't know if the picture has improved since then, or not.

One thing's for sure. The honeybee is our most important pollinator. Without it, there would be mass worldwide starvation and possibly the extinction of the Human race. We need Them. They do not need us. (As Johnny Mercer wrote in the lyrics to Song Of India: 'How small the little race of Man').

I am glad you are aware of their importance and that you are doing your part to help keep them with us

Thank you
