Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plants are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by the department of agriculture.

How to prune a peach tree?

If you don't mind waiting a few years for your peach tree to bear fruit, growing your own peach tree from seed is a rewarding experience. Follow these steps after eating a peach and saving the pit.

How to grow a peach tree from seed?

If you don't mind waiting a few years for your peach tree to bear fruit, growing your own peach tree from seed is a rewarding experience. Follow these steps after eating a peach and saving the pit.

  1. Crack the peach pit carefully to remove the kernel. The seed will germinate faster when the outer shell is removed from the pit before planting. The pit can be planted whole without cracking it open first. Hammers and nutcrackers are both sufficient tools for cracking nuts.
  2. Fill a plastic bag with the peach pit kernels. Potting soil should be almost dry when it's placed in the bag. Make sure the bag is sealed.
  3. Refrigerate the plastic bag. To induce germination, the refrigerator simulates winter conditions by introducing cold stratification.
  4. A few months after planting, check for germination. As soon as the roots reach a half-inch length, remove the pit from the refrigerator.
  5. Peach seedlings should be planted in containers. Provide enough water to moisten the soil and plant the seedlings in a sunny location. In early spring, move it outdoors after the last frost.

How to grow a peach tree?

Hundreds of varieties exist, some of which can withstand temperatures as low as -10°F. PEACH TREES love full sun and can grow up to 15 feet (5 m.) tall and 20 feet (6 m.) wide if planted at the right site. Some varieties are cold hardy to -10°F.
According to experts, peach trees should be planted in an elevated area to ensure good air circulation. You should have well-drained, loamy soil for your peach tree. Heavy rains will require quick drainage. Adding organic matter in advance may be necessary to amend the soil.
Peach trees do best in fertile topsoil despite a bit of soil clay. The best soil for peach trees is ideally in the 6.5 to 7.0 pH range.
