|Do you grow bigger fruits if you thin out the small ones?

Yes. The less fruit left on the tree, the bigger the fruit get. This variety doesn't get that large but the fruit will be bigger if you leave just a few fruit per branch in the early stages of development. In the beginning, some will fall off on their own and then we start thinning out the smaller fruits until we are left with just the biggest, best looking fruits. Right now, we're about a week or two away from ripe peaches.
Crazy thing is, our dogs seem to be interested in picking them (and eating them)! They do a sniff-check every day to see if they're ready?
