RAISING PEACH TREES .....YUMMY....BUT A BIT TRICKY

  • Select a variety of peach tree that is proven to grow in your area.
  • Choose a peach tree sapling with a straight trunk and strong, pliable branches.
  • Select a site that is flat with good circulation and drainage.
  • Water your peach tree deeply and add a new fertilizer spike about every 3 weeks.
  • Prune regularly, especially when the tree is young, to ensure a productive tree.
  • Cut back nursery tree to 24 - 36 inches and remove lateral branches flush with the trunk.
  • Place alunimum foil on the bottom 18 inches of the trunk.
  • After growth begins in the Spring, select the strongest 3-5 shoots rising from the top 6 inches on the main trunk.
  • During the next dormant season, remove everything down to the strongest 3 or 4 limbs.
  • With good care, the growth that is produced in the second growing season should produce a first crop the following year.
