Why do my peaches keep falling off before they are ripe?
Answer This can be caused by incomplete pollination back in the spring, or severe stress on the tree overall (trunk or root damage, perhaps). If you have never pruned your tree, it can be overwhelmed by too much fruit one summer and shed most of the small unripe peaches. Try thinning them next year when they are first forming—about the size of grapes—so only one or two, or maybe three, are left per cluster. All commercial growers do this to increase fruit set, size and quality of fruit. Peach Tree Care Tips • Make Grilled Peach Ice Cream
