fruit trees


I have a 8 year old peach tree, 3 1 year old peach trees, a 8 year old apple tree, 4 year old apple, 2 figs one that is 5 years old and one that is 2 years old, a 8 year old pecan, 2 lime trees that are 4 year old, a lime 1 year old, a orange 1 year old, a pomegranate the is 6 years old , the only tree that produces fruit is the pomegranate .
what is wrong? I live in central texas, they get water and fertilizer, they get treated for disease and bugs, most bloom, there are bees.

I had this happen to all my fruit trees this year. Of course I live in the middle of bipolar missouri so my weather is nothing like yours. They should be fine next year as long as you don't get another freak frost! It so disappointing when this happens!

That s the key to get fruit. If the blossoms freeze, your done with it.

Well I use to........Too tall now an they should be done. But I had oodles of apples last year. An this year none.

Red raspberrys were still bearing when it snowed here.. Mine bear 2 times a year.. I also have wild ones I love .Freeze them all an eat all winter.
Just had a cup of blueberrys.

Yes they say you should prune the. My late hubby didn't like that chore.

But watch if you got blue berrys.. They say it shocks them badly if you prune.

I will check more on your topic.
