QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Can i keep this tree down to an 7’ to 8’ foot tall tree by pruning? Is it decease resistant? Will it grow and produce well in south eastern Pa?

    You can if you're careful as peaches are tip bearing. It should grow fine in your area.

  • Pardon my ignorance but is this curl resistant?

    It is not. Reliance is bred for cold winters, dry spring times, and hot summers.

Peach tree

I ordered my trees at the end of March. They did not arrive until approx 1 1/2 month later, near to the end of the desirable planting season. Even though the roots were dry when I took them out of the box, this peach tree is taking off. It's looking good so far!
