High Yielding Dwarf Peach Tree

Get More Peaches
The Harvester Peach Tree is one of the highest-yielding peach trees you can own. This may be surprising considering it's a dwarf tree that takes up less room than a traditional peach tree. Even those with limited space in the garden or yard can successfully grow this amazing tree.  You don't need a lot of room for it to perform year after year. The Harvester grows between 2-3 feet a year and at full maturity will reach 10-15 feet tall. If you only have room for one tree it's not a problem because the Harvester self-pollinates.

Easy to Grow
If you love peaches but have hesitated to grow your own tree...now is the time because this is an easy-to-grow fruit tree. As one of the most adaptable of all the peach trees, it can accommodate most soil types. It is comfortable in partial to full sun, and tolerant of heat and humidity.  We've done the nurturing and grooming for you, so you don't have to wait years for it to bear fruit.  You can expect a healthy harvest of delicious freestone peaches your very first season. Plant it and watch it produce!

Beautiful Flowering Tree
Your Harvester is more than a high-producing peach tree.  You'll get a beautiful show of fragrant pink and white blooms in early spring every year.  The display is so exquisite, you'll anticipate the lovely spring blossoms as much as you will the abundant harvest of peaches throughout summer and into early fall. 

Order Now
As the Harvester Peach has grown in popularity, we tend to sell out quickly, so order now.  You'll enjoy this flowering tree that produces a large harvest of delicious peaches year after year!
 

 





Harvester Peach Tree Pollination

Harvester Peach Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Harvester Peach Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Peach
We love our little peach trees! We bought three and hardly do anything to them - planted them last fall with some new apple trees and they wintered over beautifully. I pruned them way back this summer to help establish a good, low branching system and they're all come back big and full. One tree was loaded with peaches in the spring, but they all dropped after a heavy storm. Looking forward to a bountiful harvest in a few years when the branches thicken up.

It's on it's way to being a beautiful tree!
We planted the tree in the spring of this year, about 5 months ago now. We're in eastern NC. We were VERY concerned to begin with because it was turning brown at the ends of the limbs. I called FastGrowingTrees, and they said that it sounds like it was still dormant, and suggested we cut off the brown parts to stimulate growth. So I did that. They also told me they have a dormancy guarantee through the end of (I can't remember now which month ;) ). . . so if it didn't start to come back to life before then, they would send us a new one. About the end of that month, we started to see some new growth, and still had to trim some more brown off, but now (end of July) it has a LOT of branch and leaf growth, so I have high hopes for a beautiful peach tree!

FANTASTIC
OK...I never fill these out...but I must tell you this tree has turned out to exceed my wildest expectations..so I am taking the time to share feedback on this....Please know that I am just a novice "yard person" - i.e. no real skills, I just enjoy taking care of my yard and trying new things. I have banana and orange trees which are common in my neighborhood but I wanted to try something different so I bought two of these...and it has worked out great....first, this tree has beautiful follage...its a very pretty tree...when it was delivered there were no leaves but now it has leafed out very nicely...second, this tree already has fruit...and I just got it and planted about three months ago...I really think its too early for fruit but the fact that it has any fruit at all at this stage impresses me. So...this nursery is for real and the claims they make are true...I also bought two plum trees (same story) and a fig tree (same story)...plum and fig trees also already have fruit and I planted them at the same time...I am planning to get some cherry and pear trees also and I will be buying from this nursery....so...Thanks!

I planted 2 months ago and already have peaches!
I went back and checked my delivery emails to be absolutely certain - my Harvester peach was delivered the first week of March, and because I had three trees delivered and once and wasn't prepared to put them all in the ground, I didn't even get the peach tree in the ground until April. But even with my bad timing, my peach tree is growing like a dream! It's loaded with peaches already (it was in fact delivered with a bunch of baby peaches on it). They aren't ripe yet so I haven't tasted the fruit, but I'm still impressed with the speed of growth!
This tree has at least 10 peaches on it this size, just a couple of months after planting!

Peaches Upon Delivery
When I opened the box, something was rolling around in it. I looked, and it was small peaches!! There was one still attached, so I knew they did come from that tree. After leaving them on the counter for a few days, I tasted one, although still a bit green, and it had a pretty good taste!! So far, after a few weeks, the original leaves are still there and I'm hoping it does well. It was left out of the original order, so they sent it a few days after I called and told them I was short 2 trees. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for yummy peaches next year!!

Planting & Care



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


Harvester Peach Tree 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.

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

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. www.plantingdirections.com. You can reach me at 888-504-2001

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 sides..no issues

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!
