PEACH TREES FOR SALE

Our peach trees for sale include freestone, clingstone, flat, yellow-fleshed, and white-fleshed popular varieties. Moreover our bareroot peach trees are 1-2 years old, 4′-6′ tall, and have an average caliper/diameter of ½” – ¾”.

In fact, peach trees, except for seedlings, have two parts. The first part is the scion which is above the ground and responsible for the fruit’s characteristics and disease resistance. And secondly, the rootstock, which is under the ground and responsible for the size, cold hardiness, and partly the disease resistance. We grow our peach trees on Bailey and Lovell rootstocks. Moreover, at full maturity, peach trees range from 10-15 feet tall. Learn more about our rootstocks.

Peach trees have such a unique taste that it is no wonder they are the second most grown fruit in America! Moreover our peach trees have different classifications, such as white and yellow fleshed and freestone and clingstone. Freestone peaches have pits that don’t cling to the flesh whereas clingstone pits do indeed cling.

If you would like to find the relevant information you need on hardiness zones, pollination, disease resistance, and more, you can see our tree descriptions.

If it is your first time growing peach trees, then you will need to consider these six steps of successful growing. First, tree selection, then site selection/soil preparation, planting, pruning, watering, and lastly protecting against pests and diseases.

The first step in your journey to grow peach trees is selecting the right tree for your conditions and preferences. Six factors you can consider are fruiting, pollination, size/rootstock, chill hours, disease resistance, and hardiness zone. Feel free to read more in depth about peach tree selection. Rootstocks help control the size of the tree and you can read more about the specific rootstocks we use. Once you know what to look for you can easily find the peach tree for you with our filtering system. You can select the right size/rootstock, hardiness zone and disease resistance.

The second step is selecting the right site for your trees and starting to prepare the soil. The five factors to consider for how to select your orchard site are elevated/rolling land, well-draining loamy soil, the right pH, full to partial sun, and protection from strong winds. Peach trees grow best in well-draining loamy soil that has a pH between 6.5 – 7.0. Since peach trees need well-draining soil in order to survive, having two feet of sandy, loamy fertile topsoil will create the ideal condition for growth. Not only does loam soil hold moisture well, but it also drains well. If the soil doesn’t drain well, then the chance of root and crown rot increases. Additionally lack of good drainage can decrease root growth.

The third step is planting! You should know when is the right time to plant as well as how to plant a peach tree. There are about ten steps that you can easily follow. However knowing when to plant peach trees depends on if you are planting barefoot or containerised and what hardiness zone you are located in.

The fourth important step is pruning a peach tree. Peach trees are best grown in an open center/vase shape with about 3-5 evenly-spaced 45 degree angled main branches. In the first growing season, prune non-primary scaffold branches so that there are 3 to 5 primary scaffold branches evenly spaced around the trunk and prune the leader to create an open center. Then remove dead, diseased and damaged limbs. Afterwards, prune back non-primary scaffold branches, then prune the suckers. Next prune back the upward, inward, and downward growing branches and then prune the whorls. And lastly, prune back all branches by 1/3rd of their length and thin the buds.

The fifth step is to know how to water peach trees. Newly planted trees would need more water than a mature tree. In fact about 5 gallons of water (one large bucket) about 3 times a week is adequate. Established trees only need to be watered when there is little rainfall or when you experience drought. Generally, about an inch of rainfall every seven to ten days is enough. To see more of the do’s and don’ts of watering peach trees check out the article above.

The sixth step to growing is protecting the tree from pests and diseases. The key factor is to practice organic pest management and also spray the tree for specific diseases at the right time.
