LOOK at my parents' peach trees Spoiler: large images This one is producing several pounds of peaches a day right now this one is just about to start producing. I just picked the first ripe fruit off it today. They're a little bigger and a little bit more tart than the first tree and this tree, the oldest one, isn't even close to being ripe yet, thank goodness. Every year it looks like it's on the brink of death and every year it gives us pounds and pounds of fruit. These trees are all so insanely productive that if we weren't here to prop up the limbs I'm pretty sure they would have broken by now. Absolutely no survival instincts, these trees. They're the french bulldogs of the fruit tree world.
