Full Answer

Once a peach tree starts to bear fruit, it will need more water than when it is not producing fruit. Deep watering done infrequently is better for peach trees than frequent shallow watering. Soil should stay moist for a depth of 4 to 6 inches near the tree. An easy way to check is to drag a finger every few days along the dirt.
