Prevention is the best method to avoid tree-health issues while growing organic fruit trees and the best place to start is with an optimal planting site. Although organic fruit can be grown in a variety of ways, organic fruit growers all agree on one thing: don't expect "perfect-looking" fruit! Don't allow a few spots and bumps to worry you because grocery retailers know that the average consumer prefers perfect-looking fruit, which is often what is stocked on produce shelves at the price of flavor and nutrients, so don't let them bother you. Some gardeners avoid planting fruit trees because they believe that a lot of chemicals are required only to preserve the fruit free of pests and diseases. In fact, the exact reverse is true! There are methods for cultivating organic fruit trees that are successful and safe to use near people, pets, and the environment, such as natural/organic pest and disease management sprays. There are various techniques that may be used to assist you to develop fruit trees that are healthy and prolific. The greatest method to avoid health difficulties in fruit trees, just like in people, is to prevent them in the first place, and the best place to start is with an optimum planting site. I've been around fruit trees for a while and have witnessed incredible things: plants producing that shouldn't be able to live in our cold conditions, and plants dying that should be thriving. I've discovered a few tips along the way that I'll share with you here to help you grow good fruit and make sensible judgments in the future. This book will provide the vital tips that will help you boost your fruit production, especially the knowledge on fruit tree illnesses.
