My fourth year peach trees are finally starting to bear, wow it is so exciting! It always feels like forever when you are waiting for your first fruit on a tree you planted. And the way folks move around these days, most people aren’t in the same state, let alone the same house after 4 or 5 years. But in the grand scheme of things 4 years isn’t very long to wait. If managed properly a few fruit trees can provide decades of fruit production.
If you haven't ever had the joy of biting into a freshly picked tree ripened peach I would highly recommend it. One of my first memories growing up was picking peaches and eating them right in the field. I don't remember where I was, how old I was, or even who I was with at the time. The one thing I will never forget is the sweet, juicy explosion of flavor that no hard and dry grocery store peach could ever be confused of being.
