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  
 
When I was younger I felt like a man trapped inside a woman's body. Then I was born. My twin is a tiny ad:
how do we get more backing of the brk?
