Peach Trees Buyer's Guide

Plant your own peach trees to enjoy sweet, homegrown peaches and save money in the process. Our peach trees produce luscious peaches that feature soft skin and creamy flesh that is bursting with full, rich flavor. They are perfect for canning and freezing, or making pies and cobblers. Fresh, homegrown peaches are also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. You won’t find most of these varieties in grocery stores, and nothing quite compares to a tree-ripened peach from your own back yard. Start harvesting your own peaches summer after summer!

  • Most of these trees produce Freestone Peaches — when you cut them open, the pit comes right out — so they’re easy to eat as a quick snack.
  • Additionally, most of these trees bear yellow-fleshed peaches, but within this selection you will find trees bearing White-Fleshed Peaches
  • There are also Heirloom Peach Trees within the selection.

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy a peach tree.

Zone Compatibility

Your climate plays an important role in whether a peach tree will produce fruit or even survive. Before ordering a tree, make sure its recommended hardiness zone range includes your area. Peach trees tend to grow most successfully in Zones 5-8, but we also offer Cold-Hardy Peach Trees for the cooler climates in parts of the north (Zone 4) and heat-tolerant varieties for the warmer climates in parts of the south and west (Zone 9).

Proper Pollination

While most of our peach trees are self-pollinating, we still recommend planting another variety in your yard for optimum fruit production. For the peach trees that do require pollination by a different variety, be sure to check the item description to see which pollinators our experts recommend. In those cases, the absence of proper pollination could cause your tree to produce poorly or to fail to bear fruit.

Mature Tree Size

Make sure you pick the right size peach tree for your space.

  • Dwarf Peach Trees mature to be about 8-10' tall and wide. Even though they are smaller, they produce an abundance of full-size fruit.
  • Standard Peach Trees mature to be about 12-15' tall and 15' wide. They are perfect if you have a large space or want a multi-purpose shade tree.
