Peaches


The kitchen has arrived just in time for 
PEACHES


This is a very old white peach tree and it hasn't had much loving for the past many years. The lack of pruning has made the tree lanky and weak limbed, especially laden as it is in high winds. I love a white peach variety but this season the fruit flavour is average. I'm sure with some proper feeding and pruning next years' crop will be outstanding. 


You can see why we bought this size oven. Both pots going at the same time, no problem!
The white peach is a free stone variety and tends to go a bit soft with the preserving but the flavour is great. No need to peel the skin of this variety, just a good wash. Remember, peaches don't ripen after picking so only select ripe fruit from the tree. Remove them with a gentle sideways twist.

  1. You did get you kitchen just in time didn't you. I m sure you whip that tree into shape and be rewarded with a bounty in the future.

  2. I've never had a house with a mature old fruit tree. I plant them wherever I am, knowing that someone will benefit someday. I just wish someone had done that for me, too.
