    Default will not bear fruit


    "I am very worried that these talks will not bear fruit."

    could you please tell me what is the meaning of the underlined part of the sentence?

    What is the final result if the blossoms of the peach tree become too cold, if they freeze? Will the tree have many peaches later on?

    My answer to your question is:
    1- The peach products might be weathered.
    2- No.

    If the blossoms freeze there will be no peaches. This is another way of saying that the peach tree will bear no fruit. A fruit tree bears fruit. A woman bears a child. An argument bears bad feelings. If, during a meeting, there is no agreement, the meeting will not bear fruit, or, it will not be fruitful.
