Peach, peach and more peach


Hi everyone. Just thought I’d share my passion fo dwarf fruit trees again but in more detail. Just wonders if peaches come into leaf after nectarines do and if any of you have dwarf peaches or nectarines and when do they fruit and just a general blog on talk about dwarf peaches and nectarines. Like to hear from you all.

well, I don't know about nectarines, but my peaches are usually ready to pick mid-July. Of course our climate is different here. I am hoping to salvage this year's crop because last year's was lost to Oriental fruit moths. By the time I found a relatively safe insecticide this year I suspect it was too late.....telltale signs of infestation on some of the young fruit. Well, maybe I'll still be able to save some. I sprayed the heck out of all 4 trees with spinosad which was my best option. Good luck with yours, there is nothing like a fresh peach right off the tree!

Thanks. It's very close to coming into leaf so I just have to be patient.
