How do you plant a peach pit?

Answer

Depending on what part of the country the peach pit is being planted with determine how to do it. If it is being planted in the northern 2/3 of the country a pottery shard needs to be placed over the drainage hole of a container filled with soil. Hollow out the center of the container 3 inches deep, place the pit and cover back up. Place outside and water, make sure to keep the seed moist. If done in the southern part of the country clean the pit and place in a plastic bag. Place the bag open in the refrigerator until fall. Plant outside under 5 inches of soil. The tree should be seen by July.

To plant a peach pit you should plant the pit during the winter or late fall. Place the pit in a bag of soil and place it in a drawer in the refrigerator. Once the pit sprouts plant it 2 or 3 inches deep in a flower pot. Allow the pit to grow. Once the tree grows a foot or more transplant the tree outside and plant it. By placing the pit in the refrigerator to sprout you will winterize it to be able to survive the up coming winter after it is planted outside.
