How to Grow and Care for Redskin Peach Tree

Redskin Peach Tree (Prunus persica “Redskin”) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 5-8 outdoors
Harvest time July - August

Planting

Plant your tree in well-drained soil and in a full sun area (receiving at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day). Be sure to protect your tree from heavy winds by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.

When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree and cover the roots with soil, watering occasionally as you go along to remove any air pockets that may have formed. Gently pat the soil down until the roots are completely covered. Finally, water the planting site and mulch to help retain moisture in the soil.

Watering

Keep the soil around your Redskin Peach moist. Watering once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for a couple of hours is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again. During times of extreme heat, your tree may need additional water.

Tip: Yellowing of the leaves is a sign of overwatering while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of underwatering.

Fertilizing

After your tree has been in the ground for 6 weeks, apply 1 pound of a balanced fertilizer formula such as 12-12-1 In addition, apply nearly three-quarters of that amount in the spring before new growth. Repeat this second process in the summer and fall as well.

Pruning

The Redskin Tree will need to be pruned the first two years in order to maintain an open center shape and encourage fruit production. Prune your tree in late winter or early spring using pruning shears and making your cuts at a 45-degree angle.

Trim away any broken/dead branches and any that are criss-crossing by making your cut right below the dead wood.

Tip

Once your tree begins to fruit, thin your peaches out. Thinning out your peaches will help to increase your overall production. Peaches on the top and outside of the tree will likely be ready to pick first. Peaches will be fully ripe when there is no green left on the skin and they come off with a slight twist.
