Organic Peaches

Taking the time to trim your fruit trees to allow ample light and air circulation can go a long way in discouraging the proliferation of insects and diseases.  If you're starting from scratch, planting more resistant varieties is the first step, along with finding a location with plenty of sunlight and air flow. Cleaning up any fruit and diseased leaves or twigs and burning or bagging and discarding off the property can be helpful too. Besides planting two fruit trees when needed for pollination, planting more than one when possible is recommended to raise the likelihood of continually getting fruit each year. Some times (especially younger trees) may die for no readily apparent reason!  As challenging and unpredictable as fruit production can be, having fresh organic fruit for you, your family and to share with others is a true joy!
