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.

Planting & Care
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.
