has anyone ever successfully started their own peach tree from a pit?
I went to a local orchard yesterday and picked about 30 peaches. These are Red Havens. I was thinking of trying to start a couple of my own from the pits. I've read a bit on-line about how you have to completely clean and dry it, then keep it in the fridge for about 4 months, then plant it. Says it takes about 3 yrs to get a bearing fruit tree.
sounds easy enough (although not sure I want to wait 3 yrs to start getting peaches!), but I'm wondering if they really grow that successfully using this method and if it's even worth the effort. You can usually buy small peach trees for around $20, although it would be fun to see if I could do this on my own.
anyone tried this?
