Default new manzano and d brazilian

With all the summer heat we've been havin, I got two more trees with flowers. One is a manzano and the other a pup of my main d brazilian. The manzano flower and now fingers are really small, Im wondering if they will mature, especially now that the summer heat seems to have ended.

Depends on what kind of Winter we have. Do they look thinner than usual?

I should have said that this was my first manzano and I have no previous experience seeing manzanos to compare with, but they just look tiny to me.

I was really surprised to see this flower because we had a freak hailstorm in the beginning of the year that lasted hours and left a few inches of hail everywhere, it tore up the leaves and that manzano turned black after a week or so. So I cut it back to almost the ground to get rid of the blackened part. It grew again but thinner in diameter and now has flowered, the pup of that tree is bigger.

Oh ok, well who knows, only time will tell. A mild winter would certainly help.
