Peach seed are planted by taking the pit of a peach, putting it into the ground, tending to it accordingly, and ultimately allowing about 3 years for a full peach tree to grow. A peach seed can also be planted indoors using good quality soil, or in a plastic bag where it is left to germinate. In this process, it is cleaned, then placed in soil in a plastic bag, and planted into a pot once a root of 1/2 inch or more grows.
To plant and grow a peach seed outdoors, plant it in the soil in the fall.
- Prepare the peach seed Scrub all of the meat from the peach off of the pit. Chill the peach seed for a minimum of 8 weeks before planting.
- Plant the pit of a peach in well-draining soil Plant the pit about 3 or 4 inches into the ground, and cover with about 1 inch of straw or mulch. Water it, and continue to do so when the soil is dry.
- Protect from animals If you live in an area where there are squirrels or chipmunks, it may be wise to plant the seed inside of a cage where animals cannot disturb it.
