Peach Tree Not Growing Fruit

Anonymous added on October 5, 2011 | Answered

I recently moved into a home that has 2 pear trees and a small orchard of peach trees. Neither type of fruit trees are growing fruit. What can I do to bring on the fruit? They are adult trees, by the way.

I would have the soil tested to make sure that there is not a phosphorus deficiency in the soil. The trees need phosphorous to bloom and produce fruit. You may also have a pollination issue. Attracting pollinators will help. These articles will help:
