Welcome to Los Angeles! LOL

I just moved here, planted a new peach tree. The tree already came with peaches on the small tree. Within two days somebody had scaled a 6 foot fence to get into the yard and took all the peaches!

Yeah, I don't know where you are, but my nectarine's fall prey to possums, birds, raccoons, etc. I doubt someone scaled your fence to get at them.

NINJAS! ahaha

In all seriousness, I had not thought of critters because there's no mess at all. Could they have eaten and taken every morsel?

Hmm, I'd like to believe it was a critter party, rather than believe some neighbor was that desperate and mean.

If it were critters, that is kind of funny. LOL

Critters did it. We have a number of trees, orange, lemon, but they really love nectarines. One day the tree was full, I picked about a dozen, came back 2 days later and the tree was almost bare. A day later, I watched as a clever crow picked two, kept both in his mouth and flew away to enjoy his goodies.

I have a highly productive Santa Rosa plum tree. The flying AND mammalian rats that wait for the ripe ones to fall leave no trace, not even a pit. There one minute, gone the next.

Animals did it. Fruit is too plentiful for people to be scaling fences.
Those critters will rob you blind. Shameless.

Keep an eye on Beret Guy. If he's got peach pie stains on his shirt, there's your culprit.
