Ornamental peach tree

I have an ornamental peach tree. I have treated the ground with weed killer and the mulch I put down this summer also has weed killer in it. Are the peaches safe to eat?

As long as you have about two months until harvest then it should be OK. Usually ornamental peaches are not quite tasty. They are edible, but they will not taste anything like a peach that one would be used to finding at the store.
