Our golden delicious apple tree drops fruit through the entire season. What are we doing wrong? It is located in our garden area and gets plenty of water. Thank you for your help.

Apples naturally go through what is called a “June drop”. If there is too much fruit set or if some flowers were not pollinated properly the tree may drop its fruit. The fruit needs to be thinned, one apple per 5-6” when they are about the size of a nickel.
