Don't know if this photo does it justice, but this is my weeping ornamental flowering peach tree. As it is an ornamental tree it's not supposed to produce fruit. that makes it sterile. Well, lo and behold, it ain't!
From the start this tree produced fruit. Not edible fruit but fruit just the same. Actually, I take that back. Our local groundhog--Mr. Groundhog as Tyler dubbed him way back when-- loved to nibble on the fallen fruits. I haven't seen him lately but I know we have other critters who must love the tiny peaches. I know this because of the peach pits I have all over the yard and under the tree.
See this? It's a little tree. A little baby weeping ornamental flowering peach tree which grew from one of the pits from the fruit of the supposedly sterile mother tree. Ain't that something to write home about?
Here's another one. I get five or six of them growing under the mama tree every year. Told you it was weird. I mean to say, who expects saplings to grow from sterile trees? Perhaps I am the Lorax after all.
