To all gardeners,

I was just thinking if I'm doing something different from most people. Every time I tell someone I get 2 harvests per blueberries, boysenberries, peaches, and blackberries, they give me this very strange look. I hear of people getting a 2nd harvest from apples but never the plants I just mentioned.

Does anyone have a logical explanation for this, or is it normal?

Thanks for your time,

Some of the berries, blueberries and raspberries, and certain low chill apples, yes two harvests per year. But with most other fruits, like stone fruits for instance, it's once a year unless you have a very unusual setup. Like the ability to provide chilling twice a year.

I have heard of the others.......technically my blueberries would give me 3 harvests a year. Have never heard of peaches giving two harvests so I am curious about that one.
