My peach tree didn't put out any peaches last year, and I thought maybe it just never would. It blossomed this spring, and a couple days ago I was out in the garden and noticed these fuzzy things on my peach tree. It took me several seconds to process the fact that what I was seeing was immature peaches.
I'm thrilled at the idea of plucking ripe peaches off my tree this year (peach cobbler, peaches and vanilla ice cream, yum!), but how do I protect them from bugs, squirrels, diseases, etc.? So far, I haven't done anything with or to the peach tree because I assumed it was just an ornamental peach tree rather than a functional one.
I've heard of spraying fruit trees for bugs, but I'm trying to go the organic route.
