Fresh Peaches in the First Year
Why Dr. Davis Peach Trees?
There’s nothing like the crisp taste of a ripe peach. And after just one year in your garden, the Dr. Davis Peach Tree provides fresh flavor and more. Developed at the University of California for maximum benefits, the Dr. Davis is second to none when it comes to production and low-maintenance.
Best of all, the Dr. Davis’s more manageable size makes it well-suited to home landscapes. If you don’t have much space, you can still grow the Dr. Davis Peach tree because it’s easy to maintain and fits right in.

Dr. Davis Peach Tree Pollination
Dr. Davis Peach Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Dr. Davis Peach Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Customer Reviews & Photos
I am happy @ this point in time will have to see how this turns out. The company does what it says !
The package arrived quickly and I planted the next day. Put mulch around tree leaving trunk open no mulch. I watered while planting as dirt was added. Soaked mulch down to insure roots would have moisture.
Planting & Care
There's a lot to love when it comes to this coveted fruit tree. The Dr. Davis Peach Tree is self-fertile, so you only need one tree to get fruit (though more trees will produce even bigger and better fruit). And because it’s been budded, grafted and established at our nursery, you’ll have fruit the first year you own the tree.
1. Planting: Full sun and well-drained, fertile soil: the two ingredients needed for your Dr. Davis Peach Tree to thrive. The Dr. Davis needs at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight each day during the growing season. To plant your Dr. Davis 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. Then, place the tree, use water to remove any air pockets and then remove debris, such as stones, grass and any clumps.
Finally, water your Dr. Davis Peach Tree again after planting is complete.
2. Watering: Your newly planted Dr. Davis Peach Tree should be watered about once weekly. However, if you get around an inch of rainfall every 10 days or so during the growing season, additional watering should be unnecessary.
The most important rule of thumb is to pay attention to your Dr. Davis Peach Tree and how it adapts to its location. If you’re not sure how much water the tree needs, simply check the soil about 2 inches down - if it's dry here, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizer: If you’re planting your Dr. Davis Peach Tree during the fall season, wait until the spring to use fertilizer. With nutrient-rich soil, fertilizer is unnecessary until your Dr. Davis Peach Tree begins bearing fruit. After your Dr. Davis Peach Tree starts bearing fruit, an application of high-nitrogen fertilizer is recommended once in early spring.
4. Pruning: Prune your Dr. Davis 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. When you do prune, make sure you’re pruning the Dr. Davis 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 Dr. Davis’s full bloom.
5. Harvesting: 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.
