Question & Answer
I need your expertise regarding the dwarf peach tree I purchased from you a few years ago. Every year I get great crop of peaches but haven't eaten any of them as yet as they end up infested, this year I did spray with liquid copper just after the buds were formed, I realise that I was meant to spray them in winter when I start seeing the first buds forming but didn't get to it. The other thing I have noticed is that the peaches all fall off after being eaten by something, I did open one peach & noticed white worms or caterpillars inside them. Should I be spraying something else in addition to the liquid copper and if so when? They're about the size of a golf ball, is this the size they should be growing to? Finally, how do I know when they are ready to be picked? Thank you so much for your help it is greatly appreciated Novice Grower, David From: RYDE NSW
As another idea for treatment of fruit fly you could try #EcoNaturalure1835 or #WildMay1826 ====== Hi David, the copper spray is used to treat leaf curl, this is a foliage problem and the trees should be sprayed in late winter before the buds break dormancy if you have a problem with this disease. With regard to your fruit you need to protect them from fruit fly, these are the grubs that are ruining your fruits. A fruit saver net would be perfect for you, we have them on order and they should be here in the coming weeks. They come in two sizes #FruitSaver2697 #FruitSaver3221 The dwarf peaches are ready to pick around Christmas time. Test one then, you will know when they are ripe.
