The ‘Red Baron’ got a bit carried away. Always a late, prolific, and spectacular bloomer, this peach tree has a truly ridiculous fruit set this year, and is leafing out really slowly.
Immediately after taking this photo, I thinned the fruit–heavily.
The ‘Thomson’ mango has also set heavily.
Compare the above with how it looked just one week ago. (If you are already in the Fruits subdomain, don’t bother clicking; the just-linked planting will be the one immediately below this one.)
