The tropical Flordabelle peach variety glories in heavy applications of well-balanced fertilizer. Apply 3/4 pound of commercial 10-10-10 fertilizer in early spring and late spring for younger trees and 1 to 2 pounds in early and late spring for older trees. For an organic fertilizer, apply well-aged manure and hay or rotted leaves in early spring.
