Our Belle of Georgia Peach (a variety that has apparently been around since the 1850's) is loaded! Peaches are small but very tasty. I am wondering what we could do to have larger peaches, but in the meantime we are enjoying these.

Thanks! I watched the video and will read the document. I had read about thinning and didn't this year. Just one thing...some of the single peaches are the same size as those which are crowded. Any thoughts on this?
