Fruit Tree Tips

We have several apple, peach and pear trees and would like to know what to spray on them to prevent the apples from getting wormy and rusty and the pears from looking good but soft and mushy and bitter on the inside. They were not like that when we moved in our first year but since then they are useless as edible fruit. Can anyone help me?

You can Google apple tree spraying online. You should be able to find info re. what to spray your trees with & when.

Re. your pears: you have to pick them while they're green (under ripe) and allow them to ripen off the tree. Keep checking them so you don't let them get mushy after they've been picked!

You might consider calling your local county extension agent. They have lots of knowledge and will probably be able to help you.
