Plethora of flowers but only 1-2 fruit set. This is year i only got 2 Peaches, they both are VERY BIG and exceptional quality My garden is Bee friendly and has many bee attracting plants and shrubs. Also fruit trees next to it ( Gulf gold Plum and Angel low chill peach ) they all get a heavy fruit set. so i am not concerned about pollination or pollinators. I do administer Winter dormancy spray ,when tree is dormant, with LIME SULFUR once every year but only when its dormant and not when in bud break or bloom. not sure why i may have a poor fruit set despite plethora of blooms ?

Update: 773 days 10hrs

Comments: -

The first NectaPlum%uFFFD from Zaiger Genetics: a white-fleshed, nectarine-peach-plum hybrid. Skin is dark maroon at fruit set, and turns pale pink when ripe. Fully ripe fruit is unparalled in flavor, and both nectarine and plum traits are easily detectable. Very productive tree is also quite ornamental. Tremendous purplish pink bloom in the spring, followed by a flourish of red leaves which mature into lush green in late summer.

Tree died... had peach leaf curl. After harvesting the fruit 30 approx all were full of maggots. I noticed tree has shed lot of leaves and die back plus dead branches. Not sure was it coz of netting. I prunned the dead bits... And hoped it will bounce back. But it never recovered. Thinking of buying one more....
