Peaches Are Dropping Off the Tree Before They Get Ripe

Anonymous added on June 14, 2011 | Answered

The peach tree drops all of the peaches before they ripen or are ready to be picked. They are hard as a rock and we never get to keep any for eating. Also, the squirels get to them first. Do you know what the problem can be and how to get at least a few peaches to eat from the tree?
