The Q&A Archives: peach tree

Question: I have a peach tree,6-7 years old,produces peaches every year but the fruit will not ripen.I've tried leaving them on the tree, picking them off the tree, leaving them on the counter, and putting them in the fridge. They will not ripen they just shrivel up no matter what I do. Please help, If not this tree is coming down.

Answer: You may have the wrong peach variety for you growing region. Peaches have specific requirements for winter cold and summer heat, as well as length of summer days. If the peaches will not ripen, no matter what you do, I think you have a variety that needs more heat for a longer period of time than your landscape can provide. Sorry!
