A Cartoon on Growing Peaches From Seed


| 3/5/2014 3:27:00 PM



I've had great luck starting peach trees from seed.

MOTHER EARTH  NEWS has shared about growing stone fruit from seed before ... but to the best of my knowledge, we have never, ever posted a totally weird cartoon on the subject.

You can see the remedy below.

Whew. That needed to be done.

Don't let people tell you that growing fruit trees from seed isn't worth it. All of our wonderful modern varieties came from seed at some point in the past. In my experience, seed-grown trees may not produce the same exact fruit as their parents, but they more than make up for it in vigor and the sheer satisfaction of owning a cultivar that's completely unique to you.



Lighten up and start some peach pits this summer... it's totally worth the time.
