Hi, I have this crabapple tree in my garden which is approximately 15 years old. This season it has held on to most of the last years fruits which have now shriveled and turned black but still refuse to drop. The new growth has just started and the tree has begun to blossom. Can anybody tell me why last years fruits haven't dropped?



They have mummified . If you can rech them , pick them off because yjey are hiding places fro this years bugs and pests.
