CHOOSING YOUR TREE
When purchasing a tree for your backyard the single most important element is to get one that has the proper chill hours for your growing zone. Chill hours refer to the number of hours the tree needs below 45 degrees in order to set peaches. In Central Florida, growing zone 9, the ideal chill hours are between 150 and 250.
CHOOSING YOUR LOCATION
When planting your peach tree it needs full sun, preferably all day. It can tolerate a little bit of shade, but no shade is best. Your tree will get 15-20 feet in diameter, give it plenty of room to grow!
