Wild Fruit

Uploaded by: ChrisAnthemum

Saturday March 23, 2013

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: When we got a large number of peaches or nectarines to can a few years ago, we threw the stones over the fence into the brush. Lo and behold, a few hardy souls took root, with the result that there are a handful of peach or nectarine volunteers in the woods now. Last year this one set a few fruits, though the critters got them before they were ripe. That's still better than my expensive grafted peaches did, which both died. :(

Thanks for your comment, Maria! My fruit trees did well for awhile, but the last two years have been very disappointing for a number of reasons. (See my series of last summer titled "Blighted Hopes.") At this point I am not replacing the ones that have had to be removed. It's kind of a kick in the teeth when a wild volunteer does better than named, grafted trees for which I paid a lot of money.

What a neat photo! My peach tree did very well for a few years then it died, as did the cherry tree, plum trees, apple trees. The only tree that survived is a pear tree which bears pretty flowers but bitter fruit. Fortunately the squirrels like the pears, bitter or not.
