Planting/Care Instructions +

Moisture: Average Water. Water regularly as needed.

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. 1. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. 2. Set the tree in place so the crown (part of the tree where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. 3. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Peach trees prefer full sun and fertile, well-drained soil which receives regular moisture. Periodic fertilizing is beneficial for good fruit production. The trees also require heavy pruning, which should be done annually during the dormant season. Removal of fallen leaves and diseased wood helps to deter the spread of peach leaf curl and brown rot, fungal diseases, which may afflict some peaches. The early spring flowers of peach trees may be susceptible to frost in colder areas.
