Prunus persica


Space plants according to ultimate width. Choose a location in full sun. While adaptable to different soils, Peach trees prefer good drainage. Staking is advisable the first year.


Cut back newly planted trees to 30 inches in height, just above a lateral branch or bud. Prune while dormant to correct structural defects and to open the center to sunlight. Contact your local State Extension Service for a regular spraying regimen for insects and disease problems.
