I wish that was it, but it says that one's leaves turn green later in the season. The leaves look like the ones on my tree, but it stays burgundy until they all fall off in autumn.

Still raining, hoping to see a pit tomorrow. Hoping even harder it's a maturing Saturn peach of any kind that's going to make edible fruit eventually.

It does look like the tree in the link, though it's grown up like a regular tree. The fruits are now less than 2 inches, but definitely looking like peaches. I would be thrilled to get any amount to the edible stage.

Not wanting to pick any, I tried checking out a pit on some of the fallen ones, but they're very little and have no discernible pit at all.

I don't think you'll need to show a pit now, after that last picture there's no doubt about it now that it's a peach of some kind. I think those peaches are just the cutest looking fuzzy little things. I hope when the fruits have matured and ripened you'll post another picture of the full-sized fruits on the tree with a report on their palatability and flavour.

I hope I get to post that picture. The color is going very peachy already but the fruits are hard and tiny. It's also obvious they're not all going to make it. When should they be ripe?

You need to thin them. But I suspect maybe August. I’m in California and just picked my nectarines, they are too early. I had to throw away.

What state and growing zone are you in?

I don't grow peaches so not too familiar with their growing habits, but according to some reading about the various cultivars of donut shaped peaches they need different kind of treatment and pruning from larger, round peach cultivars. And they all flower earlier and harvest comes a few weeks ahead of larger peaches, in mid-to-late July. When donut shaped peaches are, on average, 2 - 2.5 inches in diameter, they (apparently) should be ripe, at which time they will be really fragrant and soft to the touch, and succulent. If yours is a hybrid cross and you don't have a 100% positive ID on the cultivar, it possible yours might get slightly bigger fruits than the average though.

I agree that you may have to thin out some of the stunted or badly mis-shapen or scabbed fruits since not all of them are developing at the same rate and the weaker fruits will be a drain on the tree's efforts for the healthier fruits. It would be good to see a picture of the whole tree in its entirety to get an idea of it's full shape and how laden it is and the condition/size of all the fruits.

You may be able to protect the fruits from birds this year if you drape it early with a light-weight fine mesh net tent to keep the birds, bugs and other critters off the tree.
