Grown from a pip sown in march 2011
Here is the same tree nine years later. It first bore fruit in 2015
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.
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!
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
