Polly White Peaches are exceptional, medium-sized fruit that contains a high sugar content. It's so easy to prep these freestone fruits for desserts and cooking, as the flesh falls easily from the pit.

The fruit is perfect for fresh eating, without any acidic or tartness, the super-sweet white flesh is delectable! Don’t worry if your tree is producing more than you, your friends and neighbors can eat, these fruit stores for a short period of time plus are fantastic for sauces, jams, jellies and summer peach pie!
A fantastic specimen tree or anchor for your side yard gardens, and of course, any home orchard should have a Peach Tree too! Prune small as you need to tuck them where you can, plus so you can easily reach your juicy harvest!
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!
