How to Plant a Peach Pit
(also works with nectarines and apricots)

If you save a peach pit
you can grow your own fruit tree.

  1. Clean the pit and store it in the
    refrigerator in a plastic bag until
    September or October.
  2. Place the pit about 5 inches beneath
    the soil surface.
  3. In the Spring, your tree will start
    to grow and should be visible by July!
  4. Keep the tree watered and fertilized
    (fruit tree spikes from Wal-Mart,
    Home Depot, etc.) and you’ll have a
    fruit in 2-3 years!
