Family owned U-Pick orchard.
We have the pruning done in January or February depending on the weather.
Apricots bloom in late February, and the peaches and nectarines bloom in March. We have the thinning done in June.
Bryan does the spraying in the Spring and Fall. Irrigation, mowing, propping of the trees, marketing and sales are a group effort. Apricots start ripening about the first of July and early peach varieties usually start ripening the third week of July.
Nectarines and later peach varieties are available from the second week of August until maybe the second week of September.
