Redhaven Peach Tree 13 August 2010 Redhaven Peach Tree

There is one peach tree in the garden. It produces a fine tasting fruit. Most of the fruit has some skin damage which is Peach Scab, a fungus, but this does not penetrate into the fruit to any large degree. Apparently spraying with lime sulfur at the appropriate time can prevent this damage. There is nothing quite as tasty as a tree ripened peach, seldom encountered, unless in your own garden, since when ripe the fruit is soft and does not ship well, also it is difficult to pick without further damage.
