A touch of sunburn

We have had good and bad bits of the summer.   The worst scenario for the apples is rain overnight, then sun all day.   Although it feeds the tree well, this particular type of apple is super prone to sunburn.

As the water droplets sit on the surface from the overnight rain, they act as little magnifying lenses for the sun, scorching the skin.

The skin of these apples must be super sensitive as none of the other varieties suffer in the same way.
