Peaches YAY!!

By , May 3, 2012

Remember I was telling you how excited I was that my own three-year-old grown-from-seed peach tree had ONE blossom on it? These photos were taken March 25th:

Well now, one month later, look! The ONE blossom has been replaced by ONE peach!!!

And one of my other peach trees (still in its pot) also had blossoms, and now also has peaches! I can’t wait to see how this all turns out…

    Hi Vickie, you’ll probably get fruit in a couple years. Winter… if it’s in a pot on the south side of your house with the pot piled with leaves and mulch, and watered during dry spells, it’ll make it. Or, plant it in the garden and it’ll do just fine. Good luck!

    I have a couple of about 6 lemon trees and 14 pomegranate trees growing form seed all 3 months old. I was just wondering if your peaches were sweet or not. The ones that you planted from seed that the tree produced. I’m curious as to how many fruit trees grown from seed turn out to be sweet.

    I was curious as to how your peaches tasted after you harvested from a fruit tree grown from seed.

  8. Lindsey says:

    Hi A.,
    Next time I hope to harvest them when they’re riper. The one I was waiting for got eaten by a squirrel. We harvested the others early so they wouldn’t also get eaten. They were “okay” — not super, but not bad! More time on the tree would have helped.

    Gi’day, as you may guess, I am an Aussie, living in Qld with a temp range of 0 ℃- 45+℃, icy frost to very hot & dry, challenging, but I am able to grow commercial peach & nectarine tree’s, so here goes, now it’s my turn to give it a go, but I do have a question. Is there a way to tell if a seed will germinate or not? Somewhere I saw that if a seed sinks in a bucket of water it, it will germinate, but, do you try this when you first finished eating the piece of fruit, or after you have dried it out? or was there no truth in what I had read in the first place.

    So it has been two ish more years on your peaches, how are they doing and producing? can you do an update? I am starting my with my children as a project.

  12. Lindsey says:

    Melinda,
    They’re doing great. Producing as well as can be expected for trees their size. They’re about 5 feet tall and wide now. Need to braid the stems together as I’ve got a number of plants together in the ground.
    Cool project to do with kids!

    Hi,

    Will seeds from dried prunes grow up into trees? I have a whole load of them and want to know if I can use them.

    Thanks

  14. Lindsey says:

    Hi Shy,
    It’s hard to say; if the prunes were irradiated the seeds won’t be viable, but I’ve grown date palms from date pits from the healthfood store, so you won’t know unless you give it a try. Good luck; I hope they grow!

    Hi Lindsey how do your peaches taste – after reading your articles and seeing your photos – I’m having a go – just starting cracking open my plum seeds to soak overnight and refrigerate tomorrow – I have potting compost – is that right? it says on the pack to not use with young seeds/ seedlings as they will burn – I decided to mix the potting compost with vermiculite as I found this on another website – fingers crossed – thanks for the inspiration

  16. Lindsey says:

    Hi Niamh,
    Well… I’m not sure yet how the peaches taste; I only ever got one taste and it was from an unripe peach a squirrel had stolen and dropped in the yard! Several of my trees have succumbed (like most around our area) to peach borer 🙁 Good idea to mix the compost w/ vermiculite. Best of luck!
