Young Peaches Fall From Tree

Anonymous added on May 8, 2011 | Answered

My two peach trees are approximately 2 years old. The first year peaches grew perfectly, but squirrels got to them.  I moved the trees. This year the fruit started normally, but now the small peaches are dropping off the tree before they are very big. What might be causing this?

This is normally caused by either a watering issue or a fertilizer issue. Since you recently moved the trees, it is likely a watering issue. The trees are still recovering their roots that were lost due to the move and have sacrificed their fruit in order to continue to work on the roots. They should fruit fine next year.
