Its an invasive weed here.  They surely dont need irrigation.

Can you snap a picture?
Peaches are very heavy feeders and love fertilizer.
What are you using for fertilizer?
Do you have a well or city water?

In the past I have used 10-10-10 Diamond R fertilizer with micros and
my peaches were very green and seemed happy. It turns out I had heavy salt
in my well water and it didn't seem to bother the peaches? Now I am using
manures and spraying with miracle grow every 2 weeks and the peaches seem
happy. in both regimens I was giving the peaches plenty of micros.

Lebmung, is there any brand of kaki paste you recommend? Anything that can be found on Amazon? Thanks!

Do you find that you need to irrigate them, or do they make it without water?  Because in the bay area I've seen them grow like weeds, with no water, and are hard to deal with when they grow.

Very good chance what you have is this:

Yup, I agree with everything Cookiemonster and Orkine said. I did quite a few Doube Stone Grafts and some stone grafts and had an extremely high rate of success. I do not recommend the DSG technique anymore because the plants were too precocious and long term survival was very low.

My new experiments with innarching two seedlings together, one preferably being Polyembryonic has shown great success so far. Grafting young trees with mature scions in SoCal is a bad idea because they will try to flower and Fruit too young.

I also prefer grafting onto Monoembryonic seedlings because the seedlings are much thicker in girth compared to polyembryonic seedlings.

When grafting newly sprouted seedlings, you have to be very gentle as the seedlings are super juicy and soft like a bean sprout.

Pruning above an intercalation will yield many smaller shoots like Cookiemonster said. Hereís the details:


Thank you! I bought some. Paid a crazy amount but I canít find it anywhere and to try it for once I just had to do it.

So please, what do you think? My co-worker is from Puerto Rico and says this tree grows everywhere there and it's the best fruit ever...he talks so much about it that I searched for seeds (tree was stupidly expensive) and now have a seedling growing, and two more seeds germinating. I've never eaten mamey apple, so I'd love to hear what you thought of it.
Those fruits are amazing!

Glad I got my seed order in before they are all gone.
They won't last long. Very desirable plants!
Thanks for the quick turnaround!
