Rotten Apples

I have three apple trees which are 10 yrs old. I have not had a good apple from any of these trees yet. They are muchy and rotten. What can I do?

Hi, Well the only way to have perfect apples is to institute a spray program. Sadly, there are almost no ways you can have good apples organically. I'd use a home orchard spray (you can find at most garden centers) and apply according to directions. I know the first spraying should be right after the petals drop so you are close to that time now. Also, apples require fairly vigorous pruning and you don't say if you've pruned these trees in the ten years you've had them.
