Potted Peach Tree and Fertilizing
Hoping Fruitnut will respond here. I remember him posting before about holding back on nitrogen and water when his potted stone fruits start ripening. My tropic snow peach in a 25 gallon pot is starting to ripen. The fruit is getting bigger rapidly now and starting to get a little blush color to it. I know it needs some fert as the growth has really slowed and the leafs are not dark green as they were a month or so ago. Should I go ahead and fertilize now or wait untill the fruit is picked? I use a slow release fert so not to sure if it would effect the fruit anyway but I do want the tastiest peaches I can get off this tree. I have been holding back a little on water also.
