Here is the same tree nine years later. It first bore fruit in 2015

So only another two years to wait for my first crop:) bet you savoured every one of those peaches! Yes the flavour is really special isn't it? I was given enough to bottle and preserved several jars. Did't label them so am never sure if I'll get peaches or black Doris plums - the syrup is the same colour.

It was 3 years old last year, and had a whole 7 peaches, lol. This year it was covered in blossoms, but there were very few bees around...still, it appears there will be quite a lot of fruit-all going well.

That's good to learn Teeli. How old was the seedling the first year that it fruited and how many kilos did you get from last year's crop?

I grew 10 blackboy peach trees from stones. I gave all but one away, that one is now 4 years old and is producing well. There is just something about these peaches, that's special!

Have you had any fruit from your quince tree yet Kali? Do post a photo of your tree, I'm curious to see how tall it is after 12 years. I've got a long wait ahead of me - luckily plenty of folks grow quinces down this way so I can usually find someone to swap with:) luckily, the bbp & apricot shouldn't take so long before they bear fruit.

I have grown a Quince seedling it has taken over 12 years to have its first blossoms.

your winters must be much milder than over here, this one was totally bare when I planted it.  It's been in a pot all winter at the community garden. The friend who origianlly gave me the peaches has moved out of the house where the parent tree is so I gave her one of the BBP seedlings for her new home along with a moorpark apricot seedling and quince that I grew from pips.

also the smallest one had cicada damage to the stem so its a lot smaller and weaker than the others
