I love peaches. I had a particularly good one once and wanted to grow it. I asked a few people and looked it up on the Internet and decided that it's too complicated and it would be easier to just buy some seedlings from a nursery. The process is kind of long to type out here so I'll just refer you to Google. there is a lot of stuff there. I tried to post a link but it didn't work but there was a good article on askville.amazon.com/ plant-peach- pit which had several other links and there are a lot of other sites that Google takes you to as well. The only good reason I can see for planting a pit (several would be better) is the joy of growing it yourself as opposed to buying a tree. Many peaches are hybrids so even if you do grow one it might not be like the one you planted. Good luck if you decide to do it yourself. I hope it works out for you.
