Distance to Plant Peach Trees From Each Other?

alameda/zone 8January 9, 2009

I have just purchased another peach tree. I have only one planted - how far should I plant the new one from the first one so that they can polinate each other?

Thank you,

Judith

Judith:

Peaches are self fertile so plant it wherever you like, preferably in a sunny location with well drained soil. Just for consideration of tree size and pruning, 15-20 ft apart if you have lots of room. But they can be closer if you are short on space.
