Peaches can be fairly easy to grow, but do not expect good luck if you are trying to grow them in Hardiness Zones 4 or colder--- you are just not in stone fruit territory! Remember to prune trees adequately late in the spring to maintain vigor and to thin the fruit heavily to get good size. Try to thin to 6-10 inches between fruits on vigorous trees. Almost all peach varieties are self-fertile, so ONE tree can be planted without another variety to pollinate it without problem.
Due to phytosanitary restrictions and concerns Grandpa will not accept orders or ship Peach or Nectarine or other stonefruits to CA or HI and the following counties in Colorado---Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Mesa, Rio Grande, Saguache Counties. We may limit shipping of certain varieties to the following states--- ID, OR, WA--- depending on their source and virus-free certification status. We cannot ship any stock to CANADA or outside the USA.
Note: Planting a variety outside of its normal Hardiness Zone will void our normal replacement policy. Please be careful in your selections!
