While peach trees are self-fertile and don't require another tree to produce fruit, planting two trees is recommended for a better crop (it will still require insects to pollinate its own flowers). Fruit trees need a minimum of 6-8 hours of sunlight daily and regular water. They are not drought-tolerant. Our standard Belle of Georgia seedlings are budded to Nemaguard rootstock, and our dwarf seedlings are grafted to Prunus besseyi (Sand Cherry).
Chill hours (CU) requirement: 800-850. (Chill hours are the average hours of air temperature between 32 and 45 degrees F in a typical winter season). For best fruit production, calculate the chill unit (CU) for your growing zone to be sure it aligns with the CU requirement of this tree.

Rate of growth refers to the vertical increase in growth unless specified differently. Rate, as is true for size, is influenced by numerous variables such as soil, drainage, water, fertility, light, exposure, ad infinitum. The designation slow means the plant grows 12” or less per year; medium refers to 13 to 24” of growth per year; and fast to 25” or greater.Manual of Woody Landscape Plants, by Michael Dirr.
