Q.Reliance Peach Tree Bloomed And Fruited But The Fruits Did Not Develop

Zone Brossard (near Montreal) in province of Quebec Canada | Anonymous added on April 11, 2024 | Answered

Last year my reliance peach tree after giving bountiful fruits for several(at least3years)years, did bloom and though flowers became fruits but they did not grow in size and most of them withered away What can be done to treat it. Local garden centre suggested that it is because of the lawn fertilizer. I also have brown rot and leaf curl problem and I sprayed the tree with dormant oil and sulphur twice this year.

If your tree is in the lawn, it could be getting too much nitrogen if you fertilize the lawn. Use a balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 for peach trees. These articles should help:
