Q.Leaves on My Peach Trees Curl Downward

alexander added on July 4, 2011 | Answered

Peach tree leaves curl downward, kind of droopy looking. There are peaches on the trees. Trees get upwards of six hours of sunlight per day. If it doesn’t rain, I water every other day. Is it normal for the leaves to look droopy?

They still may not be enough water for the trees. Trees like to be watered deep, rather than frequently. And, they need water as far out as their canopy reaches, which is how far their roots reach.

So, rather than watering daily for a short period, water 1-2 times a week for a longer period of time. Also make sure that the water reaches the whole root system.
