How long does it take for peach to ripe
Hi, All. I have a ONE precious July Elberta peach on my second year tree resulted from the rescure mission back in March/April. This is first time it fruits. On Aug.1, I saw its color started to turn a little yellow, still mostly green at that time. I bagged it to prevent either two legged or four legged from picking it. Yesterday, I peeked into near its stem side of the fruit. It does not seem to turn red yet. I put a little pressure on the fruit, it is still pretty firm, not soft. I hate to take the whole bag off, I might bump the fruit off when I rebag it. So could anyone tell me how long I have to wait till the fruit is fully ripe?? I thought this year , fruit ripe early. I already had fully ripe Reliance from my neighbor a week ago. I thought my July Elberta is suppose to be earlier than Reliance. I start to wonder if the tree I have is indeed an July Elberta or not. Thanks for the help.
