The percentage bud kill which causes crop reduction will vary with each crop.
For example, to have a full crop of cherries requires well over 50% bud survival in most years, while apples, pears, and peaches may only need % bud survival.

For most fruit trees, open blossoms and the phase just after petal shed are the most sensitive to frost or freeze damage. During this time, temperatures of 28 degrees are expected to kill 10% of blossoms. Losing 10% of their potential fruit load could actually be helpful to many fruit trees, which tend to set many more fruits than they can stumppruning.barted Reading Time: 4 mins.
May 19, When the temperature drops low enough, the pistils of the flowers will die, and they will not produce fruit.
If the temperature drops after petals fall, and the new fruit is already growing, frost. Very late frost events after petal-fall can cause injury to young fruit tissues and impact fruit quality and appearance (Figure: 11). Sweet cherry fruit exposed to cold can be killed outright (Figure a). Injury to young peach fruit can result in fruit that never sizes beyond the size of a stumppruning.barted Reading Time: 10 mins. Very late frost events after petal-fall can cause injury to young fruit tissues and impact fruit quality and appearance.
Sweet cherry fruit exposed to cold can be killed outright. Injury to young peach fruit can result in fruit that never sizes beyond the size of a walnut. This can readily be seen as non-damaged fruit approaches ripeness.
Mar 14, Sprinkling the tree with water throughout the freezing period can also protect the blossoms. Sprinklers should be started before the temperature drops to freezing to be sure ice does not block the garden hose or water line. Jul 27, The first application is at green tip, followed by pre-bloom, full pink, petal fall, first cover (one week after petal fall), and second cover (two weeks after petal fall). Trees might require. May 05, Promalin will set frost damaged apple fruits.
It is the GA4+7 that does the work to set pathenocarpic (no seeds) fruits. This may work if the ovules are dead. If the pistils are dead, it will not help. The best timing in apples is tight cluster to petal fall or within 24 hours before or after a freeze stumppruning.barted Reading Time: 8 mins.
