I have a mystery peach - in two ways. The first mystery is that we don't know what variety it is. The second mystery is that we do not know why the peaches have not started to turn yellow. My Contender an Elberta peaches are bright red now. The peaches on this tree are very green.
The history behind the property is this. There is an old fallen down shack on the property and the people who lived in it died i the 70's. Sometime between 1984 - 1986 a trailer was put on the front end of the property. I believe the trailer was abandoned before 2000. The peach tree is on the edge of what used to be a hog lot. No idea if it was an intentional planting or random tree that grew from a pit in the slop.
I believe the tree was likely planted or seeded in the late 80's or 90's but that is a guess.
The tree is on the edge of a wood line and does not get the best sun. It is getting enough sun that I feel some of the peaches should have started to turn yellow Anyone else have peaches that are still green? My father sprayed the tree with Bonide fruit spray which limited the disease damage but did not prevent insect damage. Any idea what variety this could be? The pics are in the prior post.
