Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

Yesterday my baby black boy peach tree had 5 peaches on it - blardy possums stripped the tree overnight!!!

*Stomps foot in frustration then wanders off to find recipes for possum...

Not good, KA! That happened to our first BB peach crop, only it was magpies that did it. We didn't get a single one.

I googled Black boy peaches and got this thread so am going to bump it up. This is the 3rd season for my tree for fruit and it's loaded. So a couple of questions please.
Most are full of little white maggoty worms, is this codlin moth? some have sap blobs also.
How do I grow the stones, do I dry them out first or do I just plant them and/or do I have to take out the kernel and plant that?
Thanks :-)

I'll keep that. It will come in handy one day.:D:D:D

Do not take out the kernel, just stick them straight in a pot. I put them in almost as soon as I got them, and left them over winter, I got a great strike rate.

yeah, works fine with peaches. i tried apricots - both shell removed and shell on, and got a much better strike rate with shell removed.

Probably this one, www.nzpps.org/journal/51/nzpp_511890.pdf

But Guava moth has been reported as far south as Tuakau, so it would pay to get a proper ID as Guava is more serious in that you can't spray it, but can at present only pheromone trap the males, whereas leaf roller moth spray will get the oriental fruit moth.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S
