Do I need to graft my pech tree?

arvindguptaJuly 28, 2009

I have a peach tree which should be about 2-3 years old, about 4 feel tall.

It has not been grafted but very healthy tree. Do I definitely need to graft? I mean should it not give fruit on its own without grafting? What is going to be benefit of this exercise.

Please advice.

Peach trees frpm seed take 5-10 years to flower & produce fruit. the fruit may be hard & un-eatable OR may be the best taisting peach every roduced.....
Grafting yealds a fruit of known quality.

When you speak of grafting, you mean fuse two different species together, a root stock? Or are you simply refering to rooting cuttings or air layer?
