Our peaches have been nailed by hail twice while still green. Ive thinned the tree and on examinationwe have nearly 95% of each of our three trees with some level of damage. Looking online most commercial growers remove any damaged fruit for looks, these are all for us and i dont care about “ugly” - we can cut off blemishes.
I cant decide what will rot, what will be fine and generally what to do. The thought of losing a whole summer crop makes me want to cry.
Ive removed the ones in the worst shape, these pictures give an idea of the varying levels of injury. The trees themselves seem quite healthy.
What to do?
