I thought I would post a few pics of some peaches i grew from seed. i tried grafted named varieties but they didn't appear to be very hardy and they all diedeither first winter or they had so much dieback they really looked bad after pruning 3:4 of the entire tree......so I thought what the heck I have 17 acres of land so space was not an issue.I put down some pits in 2007 and some came p the next year.others came up the year after.....2 years later????? does this make sense?Any way out of some 14 surviving seedlings (had lots more but they grew up and then died or were very weak growing)and after some brutal winters I now have 10 of the hardiest still going strong. There are a few ripe ones now and the smell of them is just amazing! in the pic are 3 grocery store peaches to the left for comparison. and the plums are supposed to be santa rosa plums but not really sure if they are because the tree was bought at a box store......but let me tell you the flavor of them is just amazing so I really don`t care what they are!
