Love this tree.  Fruit should be ready in a few weeks.  Sweetest peches ever!  I thined them down to 1/3 of what had set and its still loaded.

It's hard to beat a good peach. I consider them the non tropical mango. I'm growing Long Beach Peach which is also an early variety. I'm interested to see which variety will ripen earlier. My Long Beach peaches should ripen in about three weeks. When does your Florida Prince usually ripen?

We have been eating the peaches for a few days now.  It should peak in a week or 2.  This is a really good peach cultivar for southern CA.  I am further south and futher inland than you though so ripening times sound pretty comparable to yours if they were both grown in the same locations.

Wow, that's another animal we need to deal with, luckily coyote can't climb trees!
Now I know they eat fruits, too!

Unlike you, being in the city in fenced small lot, I got to deal with other critters instead... ;D

That is definately an early peach. My Long Beach Peaches should be ready in I'm guessing two weeks.
