Bought and planted years ago in my father's orchard and they are were the BEST tasting peach ever.
Don B on Mar 23, 2021
I believe most things I plant should supply something edible. I love fresh peaches as well as dried and canned peach jams. I'm really hoping this tree produces a lot of fruit. I live in 5b zone and hope this tree will survive our harsh winters.

how far away should i plant other types of fruit trees ?
Renee M on Feb 22, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Rule of thumb on planting is how ever tall and wide something matures to is how much space you should give them. So a standard peach will reach 12-15 feet, so we recommend spacing other trees at least the 12-15 feet in distance.
