Crazy spring 3rd part
As you can see in the photo, and although it is not representing the 100% of our grove, we have a lot of trees with acceptable bloom.
According to the elders farmers in the area, in spring days when the tree is blooming, if the conditions are anomalous for the tree (we mean temperature of course) the weather will decide If this year we are going to have ‘fruit’ or ‘wood’. If finally goes to ‘Wood’, the tree uses all its strength to give new sprouts for future branches and strengthen the old ones.
So it has dominated a lot the deep red colour of new sprouts like the yellow flowers in this spring.
We estimate a 50% less in production from the normal harvest of our farm.
