Post your pics.

Just guessing because we are in a different climate and so things do not necessarily compute.

Peaches need to be culled. One peach every 8" or thereabouts on branches. Otherwise they will be small and almost inedible.

Looks like you don't enough sun exposure. Peaches need sun in order to size up, ripen and obtain sweetness.

This tree is in full sun all day. Greater than 8 hours a day

Even though your tree may be in full sun, the peaches aren't getting the sun because it appears that you're growing the tree with a central leader system. Peach trees need to be pruned to an open vase system that allows the sunlight to get to the fruit.
