Just about all of the peaches on my little peach tree split after the heavy rain we had a while ago, there were just two survivors.
I'd been looking forward to trying these all summer and the time finally came last week. They felt much softer than they had done and the fruit came away from the tree very easily.
This is what they looked like inside. Unfortunately, they were still rather hard and not at all juicy, but they did taste very peachy.
I'm hoping that I can do better next year. The tree is very small so I think I may keep it inside the greenhouse right through the year, this should avoid it having to cope with any sudden rainfall, therefore avoiding stone fruit pit split and should also reduce the threat of peach leaf curl.
I'm happy that I got a couple of peaches to try this year, I just need to make sure that they're up to scratch in future.
