Subject: [NAFEX] Green rosette?
This hasn't been a big problem, but I sometimes notice on my fruit trees
(apricots, plums, and pluots, for sure) where the growing tip at the end
of a branch will turn into something that looks rather like a green
flower, with the leaves all bunched together in a rosette. What is that?
I'm guessing that it's probably the result of an insect of some kind,
perhaps irritating the growing twig to make a safe home for itself? I
suppose it could be a disease, but it doesn't seem to spread. And it
doesn't look like pesticide damage.
Anyone know? I'm just curious.

Science is not about control. It is about cultivating a perpetual
condition of wonder in the face of something that forever grows one step
richer and subtler than our latest theory about it. It is about
reverence, not mastery. - Richard Powers
