Full Answer

Peach trees require the right type of environment and climate in order to produce peaches. Locations that provide at least six hours of sunlight and good air flow are the most suitable for growing peach trees, according to Better Homes and Garden. Climates that are too cold and locations where insects pose a risk to young plants or mature fruit are not well-suited for growing peaches.
