My small 20th century Asian pear tree bloomed this spring and I got about a dozen pears off of it. Most of the leaves started turning black and it lost a lot leaves a while back, I think it was drought related since it was so dry. I then watered it really good a couple weeks apart and it started growing a few new leaves. Well, it decided it was spring again and started blooming again. I guess I will pick off the blooms so it doesn’t waste any more of its energy.
My cherry trees are doing the same.
I have a black raspberry cane, just one (out of hundreds) that did the same, but it actually put out fruit that went on to ripen. I just picked huge berries off of it on the 16th and two days ago. There are still a few on the cane. I marked the cane and am hoping for an anomaly of nature, one that I can name/patent and get rich off of so that I can pay for my fruit growing addiction. A girl can dream, can’t she?
I have a sour cherry tree planted by the previous owner that blooms again almost every fall, but I have several different types of trees doing that this year, more than ever before, including trees I haven’t ever seen do that before like an apple, a chestnut… most (if not all) of which didn’t make a crop this year because of the late spring frost.
I read that trees/shrubs will sometimes do this if they are under stress.
Yes. Often root issues or transplant shock. I had a couple new trees do that this year.
I see this on some apple trees almost every year. a sudden influx of water, or fertilizer can cause it.
I’ve seen a few apple trees along the turnpike as well as an ornamental crab in my neighborhood that did this as well. Probably a stress thing as previously mentioned, trees thinking the end is near and trying to reproduce to save their genetics under poor conditions.
That’s just Kansas weather 90 degrees down to 50s
