Home Depot Tree update. Flowering Tropic Beauty Peach

21 Jan

My $10 Tropic beauty peach tree started budding earlier in January and by the14th of Jan, they were bursting to open. I was out of town for a week and when I returned, a bunch of very pretty little flowers adorned my branches.  Check it out!

I’m a skeptical whether these skinny branches will hold fruit but we will see. It seems to be doing quite well growing in a container since I have only had it for under six months. When I bought it from Home Depot, it was in a skinny narrow 1 gallon pot. I read that you can remove all the old leaves to trigger more blooming – I will do that when these little blossoms drop. There are only a dozen or so leaves left on the end of the branches.
