will spraying w/water help to hydrate fruit-laden peach tree?
Only rain can do that, if you spray the tree, in the heat it can scald the fruit and they will drop.  use a soaker hose or water around the base...some people mulch for the summer keep 8 inches from truck and then pull it away for winter so mice don't chew on the roots.
no, it may cause fruit to drop.  R U having a drought?  Water slowly at the base of the trunk if you are.  Have you spaced the peaches evenly around on the branches?  6 to 8 " apart is recommended.  Have you kept the branches pruned correctly?

My only problem with my peach trees are the deer, even with fence cages they seem to be able to reach the smaller trees.  And they just stnand up on their hind legs to get to the taller branches.
