Chilling hours trigger fruit trees to express specific genes for metabolism necessary to reproductive processes. The timing of the tree being released from dormancy by its genes determines its ability to begin developing fruit after its embryonic stage. This occurs during bud break, or when new buds begin to open, as on this crab apple bud swell. | Photo by Jami Scholl
