Thinning Peaches

Zone 5 | annerowe added on August 1, 2011 | Answered

My peaches are clustered, 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Is it too late to thin? I have so many peaches, but small and still hard; they are beginning to get color. Possible they will be edible? Can they be thinned now with any success for edible fruit?

You can still thin. The fruit probably will not reach optimal size, pruning this late, but their flavor will be improved.
