Post How many hours of sunlight do my fruit trees need a day?
I just put in some new trees last year, they've got a fence that's overgrown with honey suckles that blocking the morning sun at about a 55 degree angle, so it takes awhile for the sun to hit them. They're peach, nectarine, and orange tree, and I'm in California.

Is it just the morning sun that is blocked? If so, you are probably okay....I have seen a lot of trees in a lot of back yards and it seems to me that a bigger problem to worry about is a fruit tree that is surrounded more by a forest of tall trees around it than just by one fence blocking the morning sun.

You'd need to google the answer on that one but I suspect 6 hours is sufficient. Nevertheless, a cautionary tale is told on this website:

They will soon grow tall enough that they will be above the shade from a fence.
