How long does it take to show growth compared to the Apple trees?
Cowboy on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 1st yrs mainly get a few small branches but roots are developing a lot.
2ND yr get a lot more branch growth and maybe some blossoms but don't
let fruit set yet. Keep branches growing from roots or trunk below graft trimmed off. Use 10% bleach in water solution to sterilize pruners between trees. 3rd year should get good branch growth and some blossoms. I find my apple tree do about the same as peach trees. Now you can start pruning both trees but can prune interior crossing branches and long shoots any time. Stark has some good videos on pruning fruit trees. I use a dormant spray on my fruit trees and thin fruit a lot - the fruit can break branches if you don't.
Does this peach ripen on the tree?
Dave K on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. Just remember that the fruit remains firm even when it is ripe. You may have to pull one and try it to know when they are ready to pick.

A real beauty
By its 3rd spring, my dwarf blushingstar as reached almost 8' and is loaded with blossoms. This tree looks fantastic in the landscaping even without the bonus of a fruit crop. I was skeptical of bare root trees, but the packaging and shipping by Stark got a great looking tree to me that took off immediately once planted in my yard.

Doing ok
Lost the top branches but lower ones are coming on strong with big green leaves. I,m in zone 4-5 with 50 degree temperature swings in spring and fall. Paint your trunks white if you want them to survive!
