Peach Tree in North Carolina

Zone Huntersville, NC Zone 7 | martha fleming added on April 10, 2016 | Answered

Our fruit tree is about two years old and we have fruit this season as expected. I read that I should remove these small buds to allow the tree to mature more and grow stronger. In doing this, the energy is transferred to growth of the tree instead of harvesting the fruit this summer. Is this true, as I don't trust the source on the internet, and if I do leave the small fruit buds on the tree, when can we expect to harvest it? Thank you!
