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.

I enjoy this dwarf peach tree because it can be grown in a pot. I rent, so can't put anything in the ground. A compact plant is important to me. What is more important is self sufficiency. Though the plant won't feed a family. It makes me proud every year it produces fruit. It is one less peach I buy from the supermarket.

This is the first year I have had a very productive crop. I have taken the time this year and fertilised abd maintained it, now I am receiving the reward for my hard work - a lot of fruit. Have to cover them at night though, as I have possums living near by.

Update: 1643 days 5hrs

This tree has been a good performer in our subtropical garden. Although it is not as spectacular as the non-dwarf varieties (in terms of flower blossom display), it is much more practical to manage (as it can be easily netted). We will be replacing our non-dwarf varieties with this variety in the next few years. The fruit is susceptible to QLD fruit fly...

Full of fruits so you must pick off and keep only a few. The remaining peaches don's seem to grow much bigger than a large golf ball. Could it be due to the small pot size ?

Gorgeous blossom show in the spring. This alone makes this one of my favourite trees in my orchard. Fruits ripen later in the season in the subtropics,susceptible to fruit fly but it is easy to net as it is only a small tree.

I planted a second seedling in 2012 which has deep pink flowers, I bought it in the spring when it was out in blossom.

2013 I lost all the fruit was knocked off in a hail storm

Planted in a raised garden bed 1800x 800x 800mm on the 15th November, has 4 fruit on it at the moment so hoping they will continue to grow.

I have one red and one white peach.

I have since removed the fruit as I want them to grow as much as possible before winter.

This is a dwarf variety, but compared to my other dwarf peach it is growing painfully slow. I have fertilised it well and it is even in a better spot. PH is spot on, so I think it must just be the variety.
