“Millions of peaches, peaches for free...” last year when I arrived at this garden the 2 peaches and 1 apricot had already flowered and gone over, resulting in only about 5 pieces of fruit for all of them. This year I have hand pollinated all 3 trees and so far, the shucks off this “peregrine” peach have fallen, leaving behind a bounty of developing fruit. I would hazard a guess at a 95% success! #peach #fruit #developingfruit #glasshouse

need to read on thining peaches. to many very small & heavy break branches. thining makes for a better quality crop.

I know @awomanonabike , nothing better than eating a peach straight from the tree, especially when it’s slightly warm! I’ll have plenty of people knocking at the door for some

We have a peregrine and they are gorgeous, though you do have to catch them before they go papery 👍🍑

Perfect, thanks! The few that were on it last year were snaffled very quickly, so didn’t know about them turning like that, that’s good to know!
