When is a Peach Ready?

The short answer is when you can give it a gentle twist…

just like this…

and it comes away from the tree easily, like this. If it needs to be tugged at then it’s not ready.

  1. Congrats! It looks luscious and as an Australian coming into the end of winter I am quite envious.
    Thank you for MTP. You’ve inspired me to make the most of the little garden I have which now sports dwarf fruit trees, herb beds, and a compost bin that supports a wide variety of wildlife ;)

  2. Another fab post! Truly inspirational. Wish I was confident enough to grow fruit but will get there in time (I hope). Thanks again for a great site!

  3. Looks great…..right that’s it I need a peach tree in my garden somehow….off to think how and where!

  4. Damo – you really don’t need that much room. Mine is against a wall (south facing) and I have fan-trained it. I grow Tomatoes in the bed in front of it so I don’t even lose the room I had previously in the bed.
