Why are fruit trees more affected by frost than other types of trees?



  1. 0 Votes

    The frost burns the fruit when it freezes leaving marks on the fruit bud. Frosts can also kill the reproductive parts of a fruit tree blossom when it’s in its earliest developmental stages. In cherries, for instance, it is common for a cherry blossom’s pistil to be killed by frosts earlier in the season than the period of fruition. There is no place for the pollen to land and fertilize the flowers that lose their pistil, so they’ll never be cherries.
