High-Yielding Dwarf Peach Tree
Why Harvester Peach Trees?
You’ll get more peaches…even during your first year of growth. The Harvester Peach Tree is one of the highest-yielding peach trees you can own, despite its dwarf size.
And because it’s a dwarf variety, you don't need a lot of room for it to perform year after year, especially since it’s self-fertile. You’ll have bushels of fresh peaches, right from your own backyard. And it’s easy to grow, accommodating most soil types, thriving in partial to full sun, and tolerating heat and humidity.

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.
Planting & Care
Harvester Peach Trees produce sweet, succulent peaches for many years and make a wonderful addition to your landscape.
1. Planting: Plant your Harvester Peach Tree in well-drained soil and in an area where it will receive full sun (at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day). Protect your tree from heavy winds by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree and cover the roots with soil, watering occasionally as you go along to remove air pockets. Finally, gently pat the soil down until the roots are completely covered.
2. Watering: Keep the soil around your Harvester Peach Tree moist. Typically, watering once or twice a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for ten minutes is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried about three inches down, water the tree again.
Tip: 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 underwatering.
3. 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 process in the summer and fall as well.
4. 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.
Tip: Once your tree begins to fruit, thin your peaches for 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
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!
Nice healthy tri
Beautiful little tree. I ordered the 5-6 fit size and it’s probably a bit under that 5ft mark but it still looks pretty good. The travel in shipment was a little more stressful for this than it was for other items in my order. But it was very carefully packed. Would order it again
