Abstract

The- climate across Australian apple growing regions is characterised by gradual transitions between seasons, and often lack of winter chill. The result is that we end up with nonsynchronous bud-break and flowering, with fruit trees coming out of winter dormancy slowly and erratically, and often with flowering periods lasting 6 weeks or more in some regions.
