El Dorado is hardy in growing zones 5 through 9, and is very easy care! Plant in a full sun location with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.
Choose a site with slightly acidic soil, with a sandy-loam medium. Be sure to provide fertile, rich soil that is well-drained. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
Water consistently, especially when in pots or containers, and maintain average, consistent moisture throughout the growing season. Fruiting trees all benefit from Nature Hills Root Booster while planting, for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.
It is easy to maintain this tree much smaller if needed, so any sized yard can now accommodate a Peach tree! Prune to keep an open canopy for sunlight and airflow to reach the interior of the tree. Read more in our Garden Blog on Peach tree care!
