Peach Tree, 'Majestic'

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit Trees! Imagine fresh peach pie from your own peach tree!

‘Majestic’ is one of largest peaches you can grow! The huge fruits from the ‘Majestic’ Peachtree are known for their juicy, sweetness and fantastic flavor. You can almost make a meal from one peach. This is a freestone peach with deep yellow flesh inside and yellow to red-blush skin outside. ‘Freestone’ means it's easier to get the stone (or pit) out of the center of this fruit than the clingstone varieties. A Majestic Peach is noticeably larger than many of varieties of peaches.  ‘Majestic’ Peach is a summer favorite grown on a sturdy, disease-resistant tree. It is well deserving of its name. The tree itself is not very large with a mature height of about 10 to 12 feet. This smaller size makes it just perfect for the home garden or orchard with plenty of sunlight. Fragrant blossoms will add beauty to the tree in springtime, and 'Majestic' peach ripens in July-August.

The peach is the most adaptable of all fruit trees for home gardens. When planting, they should be spaced to allow a spread of 5-10 feet. At 3 or 4 years of age, they begin to bear large crops and reach peak productivity at 8 to 12 years. Peaches need clear, hot weather during their growing season and require well-drained soil as well as a regular fertilizing program. They also require heavier pruning than any other fruit trees to maintain size and encourage new growth. Most peach varieties are self-pollinating, not requiring a second tree. Cannot tolerate extreme winter cold or late frost. Peach leaf curl, brown rot, peach scab, and peach tree borer can be a problem.
