Peach issues

Two things on my second-year PF25 peach…

  1. Fruit size has held steady for six weeks. I know they stop growing during the pit hardening phase, but they’ve been about an inch and a half across for a long time. If I’m calculating correctly they should ripen about a month from now.

  2. They have dots of clear gum on them. The gum wipes off easily, the fruits look otherwise OK.

Plant bugs, stink or tarnished if it was here in S. NY. Not sure there. Green stink bugs start to damage fruit when they are small and mostly black. You hardly ever even see TPB but they leave a calling card called “cat facing” on peaches.

We have the brown stink bugs here.

I wonder what the insect is in the last photo.


Good spot Alan!
