How to Use Loring Peach Tree In The Landscape

Ornamental trees are an extravagant addition to any landscape, and Loring fits into most of them easily. Prune smaller yet for those tight spots, any sunny location will be perfect for this tree!

The glorious spring display is the perfect destination spot for a blanket where you can watch the petals flutter down around you and bees buzz from blossom to blossom! Or bask beneath the summer shade and watch your harvest ripen!

Ditch that boring flowering tree with a dual-purpose ornamental that provides you and your friends with delectable fruit as well! Edible landscaping is all the rage and you can enjoy multi-purpose plants instead!

Highlight as a focal point and specimen plant in your front yard, raising it onto a berm or raised bed to further stand it out for the entire neighborhood to see! Or add to a row of trees along the side of your property, where several of these beauties or a mixed fruit tree hedge, adds luscious privacy and screening you’ll be able to enjoy year-round!

Add as an anchor to your garden beds or as a shade tree over your seating areas or patio. Plus, these are a fantastic addition to a warm climate home orchard!

#ProPlantTips For Care

The Loring Peach is a vigorous grower that will adjust to a variety of soils and tolerates heat and humidity. Hardy in USDA hardiness zones 5 through 8 and soaks up the full sun! Fruit trees require at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day for the best crop, and best health of your tree.

For best results, provide a location with rich, organic well-drained soil, enriched with manure and compost. Top off with a good layer of mulch to hold in more moisture consistency and to also insulate the roots from both heat and cold.

For best results, fertilize your tree regularly with Dr. Earth Fruit Tree Fertilizer or a good organic, slow-release fertilizer. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.

It's generally an easy tree to care for, requiring little or no pruning, trimming or thinning, it is adaptable to shaping if you wish to keep it smaller. Read our Garden Blog for more information on pruning your fruit tree and more tips and tricks on Peach tree care

Peach Tree Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for Loring Peach Trees to bear fruit?

Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems that are already three to four years old, so you’ll enjoy fruit sooner than you would with younger trees! Expect a young peach tree to begin fruiting by the 3rd year after you plant it.

How Fast Do Loring Peach Trees Grow?

Be sure to plant your peach in a sunny and well-drained location. Once your Loring (Prunus persica 'Loring') has been established (after the first year), it can typically add 12-18 inches of new growth in a growing season. If your plants are adding less than that in a season, it may be worth your while to check the fertility level.

Where do Loring Peach Trees Grow Best?

Peach trees grow best in well-drained, fertile soil in at least 6 hours of full sun per day or more.

Do You Need 2 Peach Trees to Produce Fruit?

All peach trees are self-fertile, however planting more than one peach tree that blooms at about the same time, boosts yields on both trees and extends your harvest time!

Harvest Times for Loring Peach Trees

Lorings are typically ready to harvest in July. Keep in mind exact harvest times are subject to change depending on the hardiness zones they’re being grown in.

Early-Season? Mid-Season? Late-Season? The terminology can be confusing for new peach tree growers. Weather, climate and your tree determine when it’s ripe.

When Should Loring Peach Tree be Planted?

Bareroot peach trees can be planted in spring when they are available in your area. Container-grown peach trees can be very successfully transplanted all throughout the growing season. Check for first and last frost dates for your area with your local County Extension Office.

  • Plant bareroot peach trees in the early spring.
  • Plant container-grown trees anytime the ground is not frozen by digging a hole as deep as the soil line and twice as wide.
