    assistance with fruit laden peach tree

    i am in the foothills of northern ca. i have a white babcock peach that has been neglected in pruning and had a bad couple of years due to weather problems. this year it is covered with peaches but i fear the branches will break. should i try to support them up or should i allow them to stay down and then prune this fall?

    Did you already thin the fruits?

    Hi Gulcher,

    I too am wondering if you thinned the fruits. You mention that the tree has been neglected. Has there been any pruning to correct the problems? Do you need sites on how to prune a neglected fruit tree?
