Whenever I visual apples on a tree, in my mind I see single individual apples spread out on a branch. The apple and plum trees I have growing in my garden have the fruit all clumped together along a branch. The plum tree is so heavily ladened that I have had to prop up some of the branches to prevent them from breaking.
Looking back, I see that I should have picked off some of the fruit early on, just to lessen the load on the trees, I doubt that we will end up eating all of it.
