fruit trees with no fruit

Post by MichaelSmith » Sat May 12, 2018 1:21 am


I am trying to grow fruit trees in my urban backyard. The problem is some of them bear very little or no fruit. Out of 9 trees 5 are non-bearing. This year I realized that all the non-bearing trees ( pears and apples) came from one nursery. Is it possible that the problem has to do with the nursery itself? (Defective rootstock maybe?)
I know it sounds strange, but I can't think of any other reasons; all my trees enjoy exact same conditions in terms of the quality of soil, the amount of sun, etc
Any thoughts?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

It would be helpful to know specifically what the varieties are that are not blooming for you compared to ones that are. Some varieties of apples, and especially pears, may not come into bearing for 5 years or more, depending on the rootstock they are growing on. Some apple trees on more dwarfing rootstocks may bloom and bear fruit in the second or third year of growth.
