Planting & Care
Genetic Dwarf fruit trees require little extra work with the exception of a few important tasks. Always thin the tree aggressively leaving plenty of space between fruit. This is to allow fruit to size, keeping plenty of air circulating through the tree, to avoid mildew problems and to prevent limb breakage. Be prepared to spray for Peach Leaf Curl, consult your local Ag Extension service for local recommendations. Plant in full sun favoring the morning sun with at least 8 hours of direct sunlight on the tree Plants require good drainage, mound or create a raised bed if poor drainage is suspected
