Peaches are among the most demanding fruit trees we grow, so they require a great deal of care and attention. Starting on the day of planting, it is important to prune and train peach trees correctly in order to maintain a manageable harvest height and to maintain the tree’s health, vigor, and productivity as well.
When you are picking succulent peaches standing on the ground, it is much easier and safer than if you are balancing on a ladder to collect the fruit at the top of the tree, which could be as high as 10 feet!
If you have just planted peach trees in your yard, they need to be cut back immediately to an approximate height of 24 inches. During the spring, new branches are likely to form near the cut that need to be made.
In order to create a bowl-shaped framework using scaffold branches during the summer, select three or four well-spaced and wide-angled branches and lay them out along a straight line.
If a tree’s crown has grown vigorously and you want to encourage new side shoots, cut it back to about 24 inches from its main trunk in order to encourage new growth.
You are recommended to dig up all suckers growing from the base of the tree as they are forming a strong frame from which the majority of the wood for the fruit will be formed. As the new shoots grow, they will become secondary branches that will create the main frame that will form most of the fruit.
