[NAFEX] Early Ripening Apples

Here the apples are always self-thinning!  I'd wonder what was WRONG if I 
didn't see premature drop!   And October/late apples have trouble ripening-- 
either the poor soil, or because I've planted trees mostly in woods 
openings/less than maximum sun exposure, or both.

     My trees have been dropping apples since fruit-set, something they've 
never done before.  Consequently, I haven't had to thin them.  I haven't had 
any ripe apples drop as none are ripe.  My July ripening apples are still 
green and my October apples are getting their red blush.  All too weird.
