Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these trees 12 - 15' apart to ensure room for growth.

Other than variety selection, what can be done to cure brown rot? I live in Kansas City area.
Bryan B on Feb 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: That disease took every single peach and nectarine I had on 3 big trees last year so I've done a bit of research too.

Neem Oil & "Bonide (BND212) - All Seasons Horticultural and Dormant Spray Oil, Insecticide Concentrate (1 gal.)" I've been told. The 1st year I had me peach I used horticultural oil (only) every two weeks up from April until July I guess and no brown rot. I didn't the last two years & no peaches. There are different brands of horticultural oil and all it is is paraffin wax in a soap & water emulsion to smothers eggs and fungi. It creates a barrier between the plant and fungi so the fungi can't get established as easy.

Or Copper Fungicide, but that can cause russeting. Those three are organic.

There is also a product called "Spectracide 100507462 Immunox Multi Purpose Fungicide Spray Concentrate, 16 fl oz" (not organic) that is not organic but so far I've only found it online at Amazon.

Also, pick and toss as well as rake the peach / nectarine pits still hanging on the tree / on the ground.

For detailed and specific instructions contact your local county university agricultural agent or search the search engines.

I'm told kaolin is the best solution against Chinese brown stink bugs and japanese beetles but it is a bit unsitely so try neem oil first to see if you get good results from it.
My peach tree isn't budding. It's been over one month since I planted it. How long will it take before it begins to look alive, if it's not dead yet?
Jessy J on Jul 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It typically takes 4-6 weeks for a dormant tree to wake up and start to put on new growth. We recommend you try a scratch test: //www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/how-to-do-a-scratch-test
If that test determines the tree is no longer living and in need of replacement, please contact our Customer Support Team at 800.325.4180. They'd be happy to help.
What are cling free peaches?
Doris on Jun 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. The categorization comes whether the fruit "clings" to the pit or doesn't. A clingstone peach has fruit that does not fall off the pit. ... A freestone peach has fruit that falls right off the pit. These peaches are perfect for eating, canning, and freezing.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
I live in zone 6, and it is summer. I don't want to have to wait until spring to plant! Is the Venture peach tree okay to plant during the fall in my zone?
Shelby D on Jun 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees:
1) when the ground is not frozen.
2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F.
3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
Are they started from seed or grafted?
Lindsey M on May 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. These are grafted varieties, starting from seed takes a very long time and not as successful but can be done.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
What pollinating partner does it require?
Pete E on May 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Peaches are self pollinating and do not require another tree for pollination. They will bear fruit on their own, however planting another peach variety close by will help yield larger crops.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
