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.
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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
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 too excited
It is hard to say .. the tree arrived with all yellow leavesand very dry .....root bound . and is still struggling ...no new growth /no new leaves at all ... not sure if it will survive this winter...
Good size Healthy!
The best packaging I have ever seen Arrived great condition and very healthy. There planting kit included the stakes and fertilizer made it super easy to plant and supported against the wind. Well worth the few extra dollars. Plus the care instructions where very helpful.
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.
super juicy peaches by the first season- two of them! More than we could have asked for. The compost really helped it we think. Thank You
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.
