1/2" to 2" and bearing fruit? Wow, not like citrus in Florida. I'd make sure your mulch is not up against the trunk.

Check out these sites for some more info;

I'd rather have them below ground to keep them from being an eyesore. Either way is fine I guess.


Apple, plum, pear, peach, perssimon, etc. They are anywhere from 1/2"-2" in diameter. Dripline is about the same as the dam around the tree but varies due to different ages of tree. We are mulching around each tree post irrigation installation so that the mulch can retain the water long after the system has stopped running.

Are they still trying to grow trees that need chill time in east Texas? I've seen that debacle before. Plums and pears will work but apples and peaches?

The 2" are putting on a small amount of fruit (pears and peaches) but the 1/2" ones are no where close
The mulch will be kept below the graft.

Yep. Right north of me is a huge peach growing area several large farms. We have special varieties that will do well with only 400 or less chill hrs. This past winter was warm but usually we have a cool winter...this isnt florida!!
