Well I know that it's getting into apple season but we've just been finishing up with our ripe peaches. Our peach tree is on a south wall that doesn't get much sun. Actually only about 4 hours a day. I planted it as an experiment because it's up against a brick wall. The theory is that the wall will retain the heat when the sun hits it and then the bricks radiate heat beyond the time that the sun is on it. It also is very protected against the winter winds and early spring rains. It takes a lot longer for the peaches to ripen but we get enough peaches to make it all worth while.
