Why won't our peaches grow large enough to harvest?
Too much fruit can spoil the harvest. Small fruits will mature and ripen, but their diminutive size makes for poor-quality fruit. What your peach tree probably needs is a thorough thinning. As soon as the green peaches reach about an inch in diameter, selectively thin by pinching some of them from the branches. Leave the largest, healthiest-looking fruits to ripen, spaced about 6 inches apart. Your reward will be bigger fruit. Also, relieved of an overload of fruit, your peach tree's limbs are less likely to break.
