weeds, aka herbs, bushes, trees, etc. grow any place there is soil and the winds take their seeds.
MOTHS do not care
BEETLES do not care
WASP do not care how much ocean minerals you spray your trees every day with---would just make the apples "tastier" to them.
The worms that come from up out of the ground may not like something if it is toxic, but oceans salts is toxic to creatures that can not tolerate the salt.
REAL PEOPLE THAT STILL RAISE APPLES, set traps and those that try to not use toxic orchard chemical sprays---spray allot of copper sulfate in the fall, spring and all summer........in the fall they have to pick off dead apples and destroy them, burn the leaves, burns the sticks from trimming and trim the tree so the old saying: YOU COULD THROW A CAT through the tree--------aka SUN LIGHT, LOTS and LOTS of SUNLIGHT.
Commercial grown "organic"apples", / juices are anything but organic.
NONE ORGANIC is allot and allot of chemicals, otherwise apples trees are all GMO, your never going to find a NON GMO apple tree that will produce an apple worth eating.
