Organically-Grown Peaches, Year after Year

Higher yields with healthful results. The Harvester Peach Tree, now organically grown, produces fresh, quality peaches that are fit for eating straight from the branches or picking for your next oven-baked, from-scratch pie.

Plus, the Harvester Peach Tree is a dwarf tree, so it occupies less space than a traditional peach tree. Your new Harvester will grow between 2-3 feet per year, with a full mature height of approximately 10-15 feet and mature width of around 5-20 feet. Versatile and compact for any location, garden, side yard or sidewalk. Even better? The Harvester Peach Tree self-pollinates, so you only need one tree to harvest a fresh, organically-grown bounty of peaches.

The production of juicy, organic peaches for years to come – what’s better than fresh produce from your backyard? The Harvester Peach Tree is highly adaptable and wholly versatile, though it’s most comfortable in partial to full sun, and it can accommodate most soil types. Best of all, the Harvester Peach Tree maximizes curb appeal, with an eye-catching show of fragrant white and pink blooms that blossom in early spring, later producing an abundant harvest of peaches throughout the summer and early fall.

And the Harvester Peach Tree’s beauty belies its durable, strong growth. This coveted tree is ultra-tolerant to humidity and heat, so it’s the ideal garden addition throughout the South and thrives in growing zones 6-9. Its organic growth is the ultimate perk as well, since your new Harvester Peach Tree won’t need harsh sprays or chemicals to flourish with fresh fruit and aromatic blooms.

Never know
The tree looked great but unfortunately it lasted only a few days. I planted it using the support stick that came with it but after planting it I returned days later to find the tree snapped where the support ended and apparently the young foliage looked too good for the local wildlife. The wind or the deer were too much for the little tree but it did look good. If and when I order again I'll have to do things differently I guess.

not sure about this tree....
First I ordered a 6-7 ft. tree because it was described as ready to bear fruit. The tree is spindly and sickly looking after two weeks. I'll update my rating after two months or if it perks up.

I am not real fond of the Harvester Peach tree. When it arrived last spring it already had peaches. All but one either fell off or shriveled up. The one was tasty. I treated it the same as my lemon & lime (purchased at the same time) regarding fertilization & watering. The lemon & lime are getting fruit. This year the peach had a few blossoms but no peaches even though I hand pollinated with a brush this spring as I did for lemon & lime. The leaves are green enough but the pot keeps tipping over in the wind. Perhaps my pot is too small?

Early Bloom, Awesome Growth
I planted several trees last fall and this was easily the top performer. It bloomed early and has tremendous growth. It even had several small peaches growing on it, but they all dried up and died. I didn't really expect fruit the first year. I loved it so much I bought a second this spring. It is also doing extremely well.
Planted last fall; it burst to life this spring.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Harvester Peach Tree - USDA Organic

Harvester Peach Tree - USDA Organic Planting Diretions

The Harvester Peach also known as “Prunus persica 'Harvester,” is a gorgeous, fast producing, virtually low maintenance tree. Harvesters produce sweet, succulent peaches for many years and make a wonderful addition to your landscape. Harvester peach trees are recommended for USDA growing zones 6-9. These fast growing trees are full sun lovers, will mature to a height of 10-15 feet tall and 5-10 feet wide making them easy to pick once ripened.

Location: Plant your Harvester Peach tree in well-drained soil in a location where it will receive full sun (at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day). Heavy winds and early frosts can damage the blossoms, so be sure to protect your tree by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.

Planting Instructions: Select an area where your soil drains well and the Harvester Peach Tree will receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day.
1) Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Amend the soil around the hole with compost to ensure the tree has proper drainage.
2) Place your tree inside the hole making sure it is sitting straight and that the graft is 2 inches above the soil line.
3) Cover the roots with soil, watering occasionally as you go along to remove any air pockets that may have formed. Gently pat the soil down until the roots are completely covered.

Watering: Keep the soil around your Harvester Peach Tree moist, but not saturated. Keeping the roots too wet can cause rot damage to the roots. Typically watering once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for a couple of hours is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again. During times of extreme heat, your tree may need additional water. Yellowing of the leaves is a sign of overwatering while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of under watering.

Fertilization: After your tree has been in the ground for 6 weeks, apply 1 lb. of a balanced fertilizer formula such as 12-12-12. In addition, apply ¾ lb. of fertilizer in the Spring before the tree pushes out new growth. Repeat this in the Summer and Fall as well.

Pruning: Your Harvester Peach tree will need to be pruned the first two years in order to maintain an open center shape and encourage fruit production. Prune your tree in late winter or early spring using pruning shears and making your cuts at a 45-degree angle. Trim away any broken/dead branches and any that are criss-crossing by making your cut right below the dead wood. To achieve the open center shape, prune your tree so that the center section has only two or three main branches that will receive plenty of sunlight.

Pests: Check your tree regularly for insects and diseases. Caterpillars can form nests (egg sacs) on the tree which should be picked off immediately and spray your tree with a horticultural oil or an insecticide. Fungus can be treated by spraying a fungicide on the tree while it’s blooming.

Tips: Once your tree begins to fruit, thin your peaches out to allow each peach to have 8 inches in space to grow and mature properly. Thinning out your peaches will help to increase your overall production. Peaches on the top and outside of the tree will likely be ready to pick first. They will be fully ripe when there is no green left on the skin and they come off with a slight twist.

A local fruit farm sells out of this peach fast because they are so good for making jams, jellies, and preserves. Instead of going there and taking a chance on being able to buy some, I decided to buy my own tree.

Will this peach tree grow in a 20 gal fabric container and can I use potting mix instead of soil?
John B on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, It should grow in that size container but I wouldn't use straight potting mix, I would add peat moss and some compost if you have that available. Don't expect a lot for the first 2 years though. Mine is just starting to do something on the 2nd year I've had it. Victoria
Do you need 2 peach trees for polination?

It is August 1st. Is it too hot to plant this tree in zone 6?
Tiffany W on Aug 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No but because of the heat right now you would want to water your tree in the morning and that will help with water loss from evaporation and help the trees deal with the heat of the sun through the day. Make sure you give them a deep soaking down to the roots. We have planting directions which will also help with the planting. You can reach me at 888-504-2001
I potted this tree in a large pot on the terrace. We live in zone 6. Now that winter is coming, do I have to do anything to protect it?
Noel M on Nov 28, 2018
I have an area 4' deep by 15' wide, would that be enough space for this tree? The front of the area (15') has a cement patio, the other three sides are are fenced.
K H on Aug 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi k.h...15 feet wide and 4 feet would be sufficient. The peach tree should grow and be pruned like a champagne glass. Also make sure sunlight can pass thru it and keep inner part trimmed. I have mine next to a fence on 2 issues
Will a harvester pollinate my red haven at the proper time? Will they bloom at the same time?
Connie W on Oct 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Connie, I cannot answer your question fully because I do not have a red haven. Most information about cross pollination needs can be offered by FGT. But, I will say that the harvester we have is a fast growing and very vital tree that produces fruit by May or June in Zone 7. Good luck JW

What do you recommend planting next to the Harvester? Red Haven? Elberta? Another Harvester?
Peter L on Aug 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi, they are self pollinating, so I bought one. It was less than 4 feet when I planted it. Despite the quasi drought in Maryland this summer, it has more than doubled its height. It dropped all but one peach, which was absolutely delicious. I look forward to next year! If you want two trees, you can't go wrong with any of the above. If you want to enhance fruit, then just be certain to choose one that blooms around the same time. Good luck!
