Thinning a Harvester Peach Tree

How to thin a peach tree

How many peaches can I grow on a 3-year-old Harvester Peach tree? I asked this question on the Homegrown Liberty Facebook Group a couple days ago. While I didn’t get an answer in the form of a number, I was given some direction and this video is the result of said direction, most of which revolved around aggressively thinning the peaches.

Some Background:

Last year the peach tree gave me one peach. This year, I dumped some leftover comfrey fertilizer on it I made last year. That’s some good stuff because I have over 37 peaches on the first branch I counted. I gave up counting at 120 peaches and was about half way through the tree.
