How do I prune a peach tree?

lfm50July 11, 2013

I have 2 young peach trees, one purchased at about 5feet the one was about 12-15" purchased at the farmers mkt. the larger one looks ok but should the extra branches be pruned? The small one has grown to about 3 1/2' and as several leafy branches. How school I prune to get the proper balance of limbs? Does anyone know how to properly prune while they are still young. Planted both last fall. How long till they fruit? Any growing tips appreciated. Thanks
