I'm 58 years old now and lived most time of my live in the country - but this I've never seen before: apple blossoms next to ripe apples...    140907apfelbluete.JPG

 

If anyone has seen this before, please tell me when.

 

Edit: it's no faked picture

It indeed happens for I have seen it happen before. There is suppose to be something too it according to the old timers,weather lore. I think it will not bloom next spring, or if it does frost will get it.  So no apples on that tree next year.

Found the following online:

 

WHY DOES MY APPLE TREE HAVE BLOSSOM IN LATE SUMMER? QUESTION

My apple tree has some blossom but it is autumn. Will it harm the tree?

ANSWER

This is unusual but nothing to worry about.

This is what is happening. Next year's fruit buds actually form over the summer and normally stay dormant until the following spring. However if there is a cold-snap towards the end of the summer, followed by a warm sunny autumn, the tree may get fooled into thinking that it has just gone through winter and spring has now arrived. You might then find a small number of the latent fruit buds start to flower, and you have the strange site of blossom in late summer, possibly with fruit on the tree at the same time.

It does not usually affect the blossom the following spring.

The same process can affect temperate fruit species when grown in very warm climates, e.g. growing apple trees in southern California.

The Farmer's Almanac is predicting a winter colder than last year for the Eastern 2/3rds of America, so I'm guessing that means a warm winter for Germany. Remember a couple of winters ago Europe had a very cold winter? It was mild here.

Back to apple tree, my tree has gone nuts this year!  My wife has been taking bags of apples to work for her co-workers.  I have been eating 3-5 a day, bout every time I walk past the tree I grab one to snack on and the tree still looks like it has not been touched!  Last year the insects destroyed the apples, this year I sprayed a couple times with an organicide and it has worked awesome.  Still loosing an apple here and there, but that's to be expected.  Guess I had better get to making some apple sauce and apple butter.  I really do need to find, or make a fruit press, I would love to make my own juices.  I managed to get some juice from some salvaged apples last year and used that to make 5 gallons of hard cider..... man, that stuff is good!!

 

Sorry OP, not trying to detract from your original post.  My appologies.
