Product Description

Cold-Hardy Peach Tree With Abundant Harvests

Are you dreaming of abundant peaches in your own backyard? The Polly Peach is a cold-hardy peach tree that produces large amounts of incredibly sweet peaches without a ton of hassle or maintenance. 

With sweet-as-honey peaches, the fruit from the Polly Peach Tree is known as one of the best. These medium-sized fruits have white skin with light brush strokes of pink throughout. On the inside of the fruit, the flesh falls right off the pit and is so juicy, you may even need a napkin! Even though the Polly Peach makes a delectable on-the-go snack, it’s also great for pies, desserts, and preserves.

Cultivated in Iowa in the 1920’s, the Polly Peach is cold hardy and can withstand temperatures even as low as -20℉. This fruitful tree was cultivated to be able to resist both diseases and extremely cold temperatures. Plus, minimal pruning is required, so you can just sit back and enjoy your bountiful harvests. 

Get your very own Polly Peach Tree, so you can finally have fresh peaches in your own backyard!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your tree in well-drained soil in a location where it will receive full sun (at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day). Protect your tree from heavy winds by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree and cover the roots with soil, watering occasionally as you go along to remove any air pockets. Finally, gently pat the soil down until the roots are completely covered.

2. Watering: Keep the soil around your tree moist. Generally, water once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for a couple of hours is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again. During times of extreme heat, your tree may need additional water.

Tip: Yellowing of the leaves is a sign of overwatering, while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of underwatering.

3. Fertilization: After your tree has been in the ground for 6 weeks, apply 1 lb. of a balanced fertilizer formula such as 12-12-12. In addition, apply ¾ lb. of fertilizer in the spring before the tree pushes out new growth. Repeat this process in the summer and fall as well.

4. Pruning: Your tree will need to be pruned the first two years in order to maintain an open center shape and encourage fruit production. Prune your tree in late winter or early spring using pruning shears, making your cuts at a 45-degree angle. Trim away any broken/dead branches and any that are crisscrossing by making your cut right below the dead wood.
