Dwarf Peach Tree - Getting Fruit

    11 responses

Correy starts with ...
We have had a Dwarf Peach for 10 years but never got fruit from it. I think the reason is because it was planted in a position that didn't get sun.

Picture 1 - Before we started
Picture 2 - Pruned it back
Picture 3 - Dug it up
Picture 4 - Put it in a pot
Picture 5 - The finished product.

Do you think if we put it in the sun we will get Fruit this November? Any other tips?

This looks like the best thing that you could have done to this little peach. It will love the sun and you have greatly increased your chances of getting fruit from it. The other wonderful thing about it being in a pot is that when it flowers for you in the spring you will be able to move it somewhere where you can show it off. I love my dwarf peach it is one of the prettiest little trees when it is in flower.

My four-year old dwarf peach developed a sticky substance on its trunk, which I treated as a boar. Now it is dropping yellow leaves. Is it dying? The tree stands four feet tall and has cascading long leaves. I would hate to lose it! What should I do?
Thanks you.

Your peach tree should be dropping its leaves, it is a deciduous tree. The sticky stuff on the trunk is call gummosis, it is the trees natural protection against wounds. The wounds can be caused by tip moth, damage to the stems, borers, insect damage etc. Prune back effected tips before your tree pushes off in the spring.

You would be heading into winter over in the USA so I would not trouble yourself with worrying about your nectarine as it is a deciduous tree and should be dropping all its leaves for winter.

hi I have had a miniture peach for three years now and it has bared more fruit as the seasons go on and this year they were larger and sweeter. I have enough fruit to last all over the winter. I must say its not in a pot but in the ground and gets all the morning sun and shade in the afternoon especially when the temperatures are really hot.At present it stands at about 1 and half metres high.


good luck corey

Thanks Stan, unfortunately it's first flower that it got just by moving it's position didn't end up pollinating but now that it is getting a lot more sun I have big expectations for next spring.

Hi,
I've had problems with borers getting into the tips of my protea over the last couple of years and now I notice they seem to be getting into the tips of my Angel Peach and dwarf nectarine & peach trees as well - sticky sappy deposits on tips of most branches. I've tried Pyrethrin and Lebaycid on the protea with no luck. Is there any insecticide that will get rid of these pests?

If I've learnt anything over the last few years since I started my little orchard then itís to inspect your trees thoroughly. A tiny little critter tucked away on the underside of a leaf is probably up to no good, and when her well hidden eggs hatch youíre going to be in a spot of trouble.

Last year I lost all my peaches to a grub (not fruit fly) so this year I'm pretty eager to enjoy that bursting flavor that you just donít get from supermarket fruit. Today my potted peach tree is flushed with flowers and tiny fruit so I knew it was time for a very thorough inspection. I checked the leaves, both sides, I checked the little fruit, and I checked there was no sap in the new growth, pleasingly it all looked good.

Then I checked the mulch...

To my horror I found tiny grubs no more than 5mm crawling everywhere. A few sprays of pyrethrum and they all started squirming, there were hundreds of them. I quarantined the pot away from my other trees so I could deal with this problem. I collected all the mulch and bagged it up for disposal. On a hunch I sprayed the soil with pyrethrum and I stared at this now familiar squirming pest. So my soil has been harboring this pest all along. Now I might have been a little impulsive but I wanted to kill this pest for good so I made up a dose of grub kill and flooded the pot. I hope my tree is not impacted by a pesticide, but I must say I took a lot of pleasure watching hundreds of squirming grubs wriggle away the last moments of their life.

Now I inspect my trees and my soil thoroughly.

P.S. Bobtie last year my peach tree looked the same as yours. Tips die back, sap, and little grubs in the fruit. To bad my post from back then has been deleted.

Not wrong Bucko. The weird looking caterpillars and other bugs I've found on my avocado trees amaze me. They seem to love chewing through the copper spray that's still on the leaves?

What type of grubs were in your mulch?
