June Fruit Drop

While we were building the fruit net cage for the cherry tree we noticed it has lost most of its fruit recently. The fruit are still hard and green. This syndrome is called June Fruit Drop. One of the causes can be poor weather at blossom time. 
This year we had a series of frosts just after the cherry had blossomed. Those frosts have affected most of the other fruit trees. However one compensation is the foliage of the trees is in very good condition this year. Hopefully, while we won't get any fruit, there will some healthy branch growth.
