Bigger peaches

The tree whose peaches ripen later is finally flashing golden fruit through its leaves.

Some of the bigger peaches

Our Tunisian gardener thinned the fruit on this tree. It’s a task I find difficult – wasteful and disrespectful, somehow – so we agreed on a ‘one where there were two’ technique and I turned my back and let him do it.

The result is bigger peaches.

Some of them really are prize specimens. Their skin is so velvety soft that it will be difficult to tell when they’re ripe. The only way is to give each one a slight twist to see if it detaches.
