I read that you could feed your turtles fruit like grapes without the skin I was wondering if you could feed them peaches without the skin or strawberrys. If not is there any other kind of fruit I could try without hurting them? Do they have to be a serent age to feed them these fruits?

Introducing your turtles to vegetables/aquatic plants at some point would be good. As they age and require more plant matter, veggies/aquatic plants will be more important and better for them than fruit, which should be an occasional treat (too much fruit can cause gastrointestinal problems). For ideas on what to feed, take a look at http://www.turtlepuddle.org/health/turtlefood.html
