If you have ever wanted to have your own peach tree and fresh fruit, you can plant a peach pit to grow your own tree. Peach trees are one of the fruit trees that can be grown from a pit.To grow a peach tree from a pit, you plant the pit just as you would any other seed. Plant peach pits in the fall in holes about four inches deep with the same distance between them. Use mulch including pine needles or straw to cover them, then water them. The following spring, many of the pits will germinate.
