Is it possible to grow a peach from a stone
I am engaged in a garden, and my husband - a garden. His greatest pride is peaches, he can talk about them for hours. I just do not like writing letters, so I had to take the pen instead.

Peach variety Red Partizan
Well, in general, I want to tell you about the local peach sort. In our region it is called the Red Partisan.
And in spite of the fact that in the garden we have three more imported varieties of "cultured" peaches, this one is the most delicious, and, moreover, quite unpretentious. Withstands short-term frosts to -NNUMX °, and even if it freezes, often in spring new shoots depart from the root.
The most valuable thing in this cultivar is that the peach grows out of the bone, without losing its maternal qualities.
The husband throws them on the ground in an open, well-lit place and just presses his foot, not even sprinkling anything on top. Then he'll pour - that's all.
In the spring the tree will ascend there, and it will begin to bear fruit for the third or fourth year. But we immediately take off the first fruits, as soon as they appear. This is to ensure that the tree is properly strengthened and gain strength. We have nowhere to hurry, our peaches from us will not go anywhere.
Yes, I forgot to say that my husband throws the bones at once to a clearly chosen place, because our Red Partisan does not like transplants.
The yields of this variety are so abundant that the branches have to be supported with stakes, otherwise they will necessarily break.
Yes, here you can see in the photo, and this despite the fact that half of the fruits have already been taken off!

To peaches were large
And to make the fruits large, we have to go to the trick: we remove the part of the harvest still green, otherwise the tree will be exhausted from a large number of peaches, and they will grow small, and grow in size with the average apple.
My husband and I believe that this is a very worthy result.
With watering we do not bother, because the roots of the tree go very deep and they themselves extract moisture. But if the summer is a long heat, once a week after all watering the trees, but also without fanaticism.
Our Red partisan is a sort of late ripening, it starts to ripen in September and by the beginning of October we are harvesting the last fruits.
Peach is a tree that is short-lived, so every two years we throw stones and grow new trees.
And the old ones are simply cut down for firewood.
