Effects of climate warming and increased CO2 in Apples

Post by PA_Docent »

I started researching what will happen in the future to fruit trees (particularly apples). If water is not an issue, wood and fruit growth in fruit/apples should enhance growth of wood, canopy, and production (?). Can anyone add to this discussion? I am not a biologist, just a concerned citizen trying to plan best for the future. Thanks!

Not sure that it will the increased CO2 will make any wild differences in your own orchard, but it never hurts to plant lots of apple trees anyway!

I find the extremely hot summers some localities are receiving a cause for concern tho. Some berries and perhaps some apples or other fruits tend to "cook" when it gets too hot for too long.

Thanks for posting. :)

Berries drying out perhaps? Have you tried Gooseberries? They have a lot of leaves and the fruit develops on the underside of the branch. I have Hinnomaki Red and they are strong their second year in the ground. Had a bumper crop of gooseberries too :) Expanding my fruit trees and bushes next year again (more currants, blueberries).

Just look at what is successful south of you where it is hotter and think about planting those apples that are successful down there. The USDA just changed our area to a different Zone, so I must change with it.... to a degree.

All the king's horses and all the king's men doesn't make them right.

I for one am concerned about global warming. And I am a scientist.

I spoke with a friend who works for NOAA. He thinks this is the tipping point of an ice age. I have heard that theory too however I believe in global warming. Even a few degrees warmer in central PA should not hurt my fruit production - may improve production. The two years since I lived here we have experienced no drought and if you check out the Drought Indicator online, there is a "tongue" of no drought over this area and hope it remains that way. I am happy I moved from Texas three yrs ago.

Global warming is a fact. The last time the average global temp was below the monthly average was Feb 1985! That's 329 months in a row of at or higher than normal temps.

Why is it going up is a good question. Maybe it is human related, maybe its natural, maybe we can stop it, maybe we can't. But to say it isn't happening is "stick your head in the sand stupid".
