Donut (Grafted) 8/10

Akkaydrah1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1335 days 6hrs

Comments: -

The Donut peach has an exceptionally sweet taste but the fruit is only about 50mm dia and donut shaped.  This is the first year that we have had a significant amount of fruit (30 px). Tree has been attacked by cows, cockatoos and kangaroos so we have had to fence the orchard.  This is an ideal fruit for kids going to school.

It gets watered once per week by irrigation which is  a poly ring 600 mm dia and under the mulch.  This keeps the ground moist but not wet.  long tap rooted weeds such as wild radish and scotch thistle are encouraged then chopped and mulched just before flowers go to seed.  This breaks up the clay pan and provides nutrients to the tree.  Dead roots provide water chanels top deep layers and encourage worms.  Home made manure is from nettles, dead chooks, urine and fire ash soaked in water.  This is diluted 1: 25 and watered over mulch in late February.
