#ProPlantTips For Care

All fruit trees require full sun for optimal growth and harvest, plant your Polly White Peach in at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.

Widely adaptable to all types of soil conditions, the best type is fertile, well-drained soil with moderate, yet consistent moisture. Provide supplemental watering during fruiting, during summers and in times of drought.

A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.

Prune in summer to control the size, remove suckers and water growth, but prune in winter to open the canopy to sunlight and air circulation, and to remove damaged, dead or diseased branching. Head over to our Garden Blog for more tips and tricks for caring for your Peach tree!

Store-bought white-fleshed peaches will never taste as sweet as when they are freshly picked. Order your own high-quality Polly White Peach today and start growing peaches in your own yard! Go to NatureHills.com to get started right away!

Peach Tree Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for Polly White 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 Polly White Peach Trees Grow?

Be sure to plant your peach in a sunny and well-drained location. Once your Polly White (Prunus persica 'Polly White') 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 Polly White 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 Polly White Peach Trees

Polly Whites 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 Polly White 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.
