Default Your fruit might need thinning if ...

Here's a few branches worth of the 1,000's of fruit sets on my Saturn Peach. In the top center background you can see the pink blossoms of the Panamint Nectarine gearing up for the same response.

It's going to be a lot of work for all of us!
I usually wouldn't thin out until the next 3 major strong winds have passed. Those winds will thin them out naturally for me. If there's more then that's the time I would thin out.

But I paid dearly with that lazy approach. We went on vacation for 10 days and came back to find 4 of my peach trees broken from the overload. And I thinned them out before we left.

Oh yes, I had a major branch broke on me on my Fuji because of the overloaded fruit. But I let them ripe on the tree even though it's ugly to look at.

Has anyone ever had a bunch of nanners overload the pstem? That happened to me last year. Poor nanner; I was planning to cut it down when it was done, but I lost the bunch to the crashing into the soil thing. It was quite a tall nanner, too, about 10 feet.

Yes, I staked mine but the stake broke... So I did not have a ripe one. We can process unripe bananas.

Today I thinned my peach tree, pictured in post #1 below. I filled up 2.5 gallons of a bucket with 1/2 inch to 1 inch size fruits, leaving about 120 fruits on the tree.
