Interesting how there’s much more of the white peach colouring in your blood peach.

A wind storm damaged a couple of branches on my free stone blood peach tree and thinned the fruit at the same time! Hoping that the remaining peaches will be ready to eat in a few weeks time. Have any of your pits germinated Judith?

I just checked yesterday and nothing yet.  
I wouldn't expect them to sprout for another month at least though as it needs to warm up a bit.  I'll probably be tempted to pop one out of the soil and give it a look sometime soon.  So happy to have them and really appreciate your perseverance getting them here

Your tree looks great and the view even better!  Is that a lake right out your door?

Now, I have some of my pits from last year germinating...nothing from yours yet Megan but I have hope.  I wonder how they will adjust to being out of sync with our seasons? might take a longer time to sprout?  I will probably pop one out of the pot and check in a few days just out of curiosity

Megan...here it is!

I'm really excited to have even one germinate...
It will have a place of honor here


I see my label says July 2020 which must have been when I planted the kernel?  
The pot stayed outdoors ever since with a little straw on top over the winter and survived our super cold and snowy February.

Hi, Will....I won't know for awhile? There are just a few peaches that made it through our late freezes and now there is a serious frost expected in a week...so might lose even those.  
Sorry I missed your post until now...even last year I only had a small crop due to late freezes and frosts.

I'll definitely post here if I have some to share.

Hello Judith, so glad that you have at least one seedling for your efforts. Thank you so much for the photos, it looks really healthy. The blossoms on my tree at home were damaged by a frost and only one branch closest to the house bore any fruit, just enough to make a small batch of jam that will be savoured!
