I moved into a home a couple of months ago, and there's what seems to be a peach tree in a container, right next to a Queen palm.
Is this a peach tree? I can't tell as the fruit is really small and we haven't tried to eat it yet :)
The tree seems to have branches in all directions, but the last 12-18"+ of the branches have no leaves on them at all, just some fruit. Is this normal? Should I prune the tree - either now or wait till Nov/Dec?
I would feel better if this was in the ground - should I plant it now or wait till winter/early spring? I would have hopes of getting some edible fruit next summer, anything apart from organic fertilizer and a regular watering schedule I should take care of?
Is it okay if I plant it in the same spot - it's 3ft from the trunk of a Queen Palm but since the palm tree's 30ft tall, there's ample sun throughout the day. I'm just not sure how "wide" this can go.
This is in southern California.
