15,000 pounds of peaches is a lot of peaches! I would love to get to that point.
I’m on a conventional spacing (18X20) on my peaches and I’m not sold on the advantage of high density peaches on a normal rootstock at this time. At least not for my area
I drank the Cornell Kool-Aid, so my apples are high density (about 800 tree/acre). Due to my lack of experience and some bad luck, I spent a lot of money on trellis and trees and so far I have not realized the expected early yield of this system. The nursery that grew the trees is doing a lot better than I am! They are selling trees like crazy and can not keep up with demand. For a new grower like myself, semi dwarf trees may have been a better choice. I have seen the 1000 bu/acre yield frequently used for high density apples… If I can get half that production, I can pay for the rather extreme investment I made in the Apple orchard, but so far its not working as expected.
