The first ripe peaches of the year.

We planted a few trees up against a wall at the town house last year, to test out the espalier technique (whereby branches span out flat instead of as a canopy). The results so far have been amazing, in that a very young tree already has two ripe fruit on it, weeks ahead of our other peach trees. We’re attributing the early ripening to the added heat that the wall stores, and we hope that this thermal mass help protect the trees from the late freezes that can sometimes kill a tree’s blossoms.
