The apricot tree just finished its harvest, and we got ~30 or so fruits (squirrels got a bunch). The peach tree dropped all of its set fruits except one. The nectarine only set four. My question is, are they done? Stone fruit season is pretty much over out here, and the little they have haven’t gotten any bigger in over a month.

    Your peaches and nectarines will ripen later. They will not make flowers until next spring.

    I am in Texas and nectarines and peaches here are slightly larger than golf balls !
    They are later than usual for some reason,, could because of all the wet weather !
