    Hi Marilyn, do you have different peach trees, that is, peach trees of different varieties? You'll need at least 2 trees, within about 20-30 feet of each other, of different varieties in order to enable pollination to take place. Another factor is when the trees bloom -- if they bloom too early in the season the bees may not be finding them because they aren't out of the hives yet.

    It's peachless.  (Sorry...couldn't resist.)

    This year was a tough one on peach trees in Texas. In addition to pollination problems, if your tree is under stress, it will not fruit to save energy for survival. That said, if you had plenty of blooms, did you prune to make sure sun and air could get to all sections of the tree? Did you fertilize? Did you water, even in the winter dry spell? Did you look for pest or disease damage or proactively do a dormant spray? I did all those things and my white peach did fairly well. Not great, but okay.
