Tropic beauty peach blooming (So. Flo.)
« on: September 05, 2019, 10:33:01 AM »
My Tropic beauty peach tree is blooming at this late date, and it totally missed even one flower this spring? Does anyone else have this happening with their peach trees?

Peach trees tend to be very hardy and shrug off winter effects. I have peach trees that are showing more life right now that it's cold and raining so hard I can't hear myself think versus earlier in the year when it was warm and optimally humid.

I have not had them bloom or fruit this late but I did have an apple tree that I transplanted late, bloom in december. It was an unusually warm period during december followed by a sharp drop in temps during the final following months of the winter season.

My peach/nectarine group is still maturing to the point where it can fruit.
