Fresh, Tasty Peaches and Good Looks in One Year
Fresh, juicy peaches, right from your backyard and after just one year. You don’t have to move to the country to eat a lot of these super sweet fruits. Our Andross Peach Trees are adaptable, versatile, and self-fertile, so you won’t need an orchard either.
What else makes the Andross Peach Tree a prime pick for your very own backyard supermarket?
-It’s an ultra-fast grower that produces fruit within the first year.
-It grows to a manageable height of 12 to 14 feet.
-It produces consistent, robust and heavy crops.
There’s a lot to love when it comes to the Andross. And not only is this one-of-a-kind Peach Tree healthful and bountiful, but it’s also eye-catching. These plush peaches are synonymous with a bold show of color – vibrant yellow and red blush hues decorate the tree’s lush silhouette.
Plus, with a smaller, more modest size, it’s well-suited for home landscapes. The Andross Peach Tree shines amongst backyards and gardens as a focal point that’s fresh. Delicate blooms emerge in April, giving way to ripened fruit in August. A medium red blush with yellow hues and rich harvest color are striking on the medium to large-sized peaches.
Even better? You’ll get supple peaches all your own within one year. And whether you pluck these peaches for syrup, fruit salad or jam, you’ll be impressed by the rich palate of flavors the Andross Peach provides. Clear flesh with superior flavor makes it well-suited to canning.
Peaches, pretty, plush and perfectly tasty. The Andross Peach Tree is a landscape essential. Order yours today!

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

Planting & Care
What's not to love about the Andross? Because the Andross Peach Tree is self-fertile, you only need one tree to get fruit (though more trees will produce even bigger and better peaches). Plus, since it’s been budded, grafted and established at our nursery, you’ll have fruit the first year you own the tree. And though it’s low-maintenance and hassle-free, the Andross does require proper care to thrive.
Full sun and well-drained, fertile soil: the two ingredients needed for your Andross Peach Tree to thrive. The Andross needs at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight each day during the growing season, as this is vital to high-quality, productive fruiting and the prevention of fungal issues.
And though the Andross prefers well-drained soil without heavy clays or sands, it does adapt to less-than-preferable soil types and drainage. When composts or fertilizers are added, the Andross Peach Tree is even more adaptable in nutritionally poor soil. Here are a few of our tips for planting that help your Andross stay happy and healthy:
1) Once your tree arrives, make sure it is watered as soon as possible. If you can’t plant your tree immediately, ensure its roots are hydrated and that the tree itself is kept in a sheltered location.
2) To plant your Andross Peach Tree, dig each hole shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width. After the hole is finished, loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can break through easily.
3) Finally, use your shovel or drag the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole to ensure it’s ready.
4) Separate the roots of your Andross Peach gently and position them downward, into the hold. The top of the root flare (the location where the roots end and the trunk begins) should be approximately an inch above the surrounding soil.
5) Ensure that the tree is placed vertically into the hole – to make it just right, use your level.
6) As you backfill the hole, use water to remove any air pockets and then remove debris, such as stones, grass and any clumps.
7) Water your Andross Peach Tree again after planting is complete.
Your newly planted Andross Peach Tree should be thoroughly watered. However, if the growing season around an inch of rainfall every 10 days or so, additional watering should be unnecessary.
Even in the midst of a drought, you should avoid overwatering your tree. Waterlogged roots are worse than dry roots! The most important rule of thumb is to pay attention to your Andross Peach Tree and how it adapts to its location. If you’re not sure how much water the tree needs, use a moisture meter to evaluate your soil.
If you’re planting your Andross Peach Tree during the fall season, wait until the spring to use fertilizer. With nutrient-rich soil, fertilizer is unnecessary until your Andross Peach Tree begins bearing fruit, or if your tree fails to grow adequately.
After your Andross Peach Tree starts bearing fruit, an application of high-nitrogen fertilizer is recommended, as its nitrogen intake increases. We recommend applying this fertilizer once during the early spring.
To encourage your Andross’s health and growth, apply 2 to 3 inches of organic material, such as wood bark, surrounding its root zone. Mulching your Andross Peach Tree can help discourage weeds, injury and evaporation, especially as you go into the winter months.
Prune your Andross Peach Trees each year during their dormant season. If you’re located in growing zones 6 or further up North, wait to prune your tree until the late winter. Annual pruning is vital to ensure your trees thrive.
When you do prune, make sure you’re pruning the Andross Peach Tree in an “open center” shape, which keeps the tree’s canopy open for light purposes. The best time to prune? Within 20 to 40 days of your Andross’s full bloom. Prune your tree so that each remaining peach is spaced 6 to 8 inches apart on the branches. Leave the center bloom in each cluster since it develops into the largest fruit.
Pests and Diseases
Because your tree is adaptable and durable (and boasts high resistance to root knot nematode), preventive spraying and proper care should mitigate any issue with pests or diseases. Good maintenance is essential for staving off these problems – adequate watering, fertilizing and pruning are vital.
When their characteristic color is completely developed, your peaches are ripe. You should see no more traces of green, and when gently squeezed, your ripened peaches will “give” a bit.
After you’ve picked and harvested your fresh peaches, it’s best to keep them out rather than refrigerate them. However, they will keep a few days longer when they’re kept in your refrigerator. Freezing or canning is also ideal so that no peach is left behind!
