peach tree help

I have a peach tree that produces tiny peaches but nothing edible. It is located in a flower bed right in front of my house....not by choice we just moved here a few years ago. We have tried picking a bunch off when they were tiny to try to produced edible fruit but it didn't work. I want to pull out all of the other crazy plants in there and mulch to see if this would help give the tree more nutrients. Does anyone have advice on how to do this? Or if I even should? There are vines and violets and tons of other stuff. Can I use a tiller or will that mess up the roots? should I put plastic or something down after clearing the bed? I am pretty new to gardening so any help would be appreciated. I also have chickens and rabbits so wondering if throwing some of their poop in there would help?

Welcome to the forums!

First you need to let us know what is wrong with the peaches , more descriptive than not edible.
All the vines need to be cut/pulled off of the tree.

The peaches are hard and small. No juice. The size of a golf ball. There are no vines on the tree. They are just on the ground.

posting a few pics of the tree might help verify - https://www.doityourself.com/forum/e...-pictures.html

It's hard to offer advice without knowing what tree you have and where in the country you are located. Are you sure it's not a persimmon or some other fruit?

The previous owners said it was a peach tree. The fruit looks and smells like peaches and the pits inside look like peach pits. I am located in Northern Lower Michigan.

I would guess that it is an ornamental. They usually produce undersized or small fruit since the tree is bred for pretty flowers.

That's what I was thinking also. The fruit peach trees I've been around were bigger than that. ... and isn't mich too far north for peach trees?

I have peach trees, seems my flowers don't get near that size, from the picture though it could use a good pruning.
