I have many peaches where there are two peaches in the same pod. They are growing together much like conjoined twins. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Guessing by where you live, I believe that what is happening to the tree is something called buttoning. It occurs when the tree receives too little chilling. The fruit never ripens well and are small and misshapen. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/peach/peach-chill-hours.htm The other possibility is that the tree needs to be thinned after fruit sets. This article will help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/peach/peach-tree-thinning.htm
