[nafex] Sweet Sixteen

So I’ll start with a sad story. My Sweet Sixteen apple, about 10 years old, was just starting to give wonderful crops of amazing apples. This spring, as it was laden with blossoms, we had a heavy frost. Some of the fruits developed anyway.
Then the season became quite dry. By August, the tree shriveled up and died. Completely dead.
After so long to have established its root system, is it possible the drought really was what killed it?
