  • Harvest: July 8 - July 29

The Midpride Peach Tree, scientifically known as Prunus persica 'Midpride,' is a delightful fruit-bearing tree renowned for its sweet and succulent peaches. This semi-dwarf tree is a popular choice among home gardeners and orchard enthusiasts, offering an abundance of flavorful fruit while remaining manageable in size.

Midpride peach trees are an excellent choice for home orchards, producing delicious fruit that ripens mid-season. As stone fruits, they thrive in warm climates and require a full growing season to develop their sweet, juicy peaches. These trees are particularly well-suited for smaller spaces or container gardening, as they are available in dwarf varieties, making them manageable for even the smallest of gardens. When fully mature, Midpride peach trees bear abundant fruit that is perfect for eating fresh off the tree or incorporating into various culinary dishes. With their compact size and prolific fruit production, these trees are a delightful addition to any garden or landscape.

Key Characteristics of the Midpride Peach Tree:

  1. Fruit Flavor: The Midpride Peach is celebrated for its exceptional flavor. Its peaches are sweet, juicy, and bursting with a rich, classic peach taste that is perfect for fresh eating, baking, canning, and making preserves.

  2. Semi-Dwarf Size: The Midpride Peach Tree is classified as a semi-dwarf tree, which means it remains smaller in stature compared to standard peach trees. This compact size makes it suitable for smaller garden spaces and easier to manage, including pruning and harvesting.

  3. Fruit Appearance: The peaches produced by the Midpride Peach Tree are typically medium to large in size with a beautiful, reddish blush over a yellow background. Their appearance is both visually appealing and appetizing.

  4. Ripening Season: This peach variety is known for its relatively early ripening season, usually in mid to late summer, depending on your location and climate.

  5. Self-Pollinating: While the Midpride Peach Tree can benefit from cross-pollination with other peach varieties, it is also self-pollinating to some extent. This means that even if you have limited space for planting multiple peach trees, you can still expect a reasonable fruit yield.

Caring for Your Midpride Peach Tree:

To ensure the health and productivity of your Midpride Peach Tree, follow these care guidelines:

  1. Location: Plant your peach tree in a sunny location with well-draining soil. Peach trees thrive in full sunlight, receiving at least 6-8 hours of direct sun daily.

  2. Spacing: Allow adequate spacing between your Midpride Peach Tree and other trees or structures to ensure proper air circulation and sunlight penetration. Typically, semi-dwarf peach trees should be planted at least 10-15 feet apart.

  3. Pruning: Regular pruning is essential to maintain the tree's shape, remove dead or diseased branches, and encourage strong fruit production. Prune during the dormant season (winter or early spring) to avoid disrupting fruiting branches.

  4. Watering: Peach trees require consistent moisture to produce healthy fruit. Provide deep and infrequent watering, ensuring that the soil remains evenly moist but not waterlogged.

  5. Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer in the spring to provide essential nutrients for fruit development. Adjust the fertilizer based on the results of a soil test.

  6. Pest and Disease Management: Monitor your tree for common peach pests, such as aphids or peach leaf curl, and implement appropriate pest control measures when necessary. Choose organic or eco-friendly options whenever possible.

Benefits of Growing the Midpride Peach Tree:

  1. Delicious Fruit: The Midpride Peach Tree rewards gardeners with sweet and juicy peaches that are perfect for enjoying fresh or incorporating into various culinary creations.

  2. Semi-Dwarf Size: Its compact size makes it an excellent choice for smaller gardens, urban spaces, or container planting.

  3. Self-Pollinating: While cross-pollination can enhance fruit production, this tree can produce fruit without the need for additional peach trees, making it suitable for solo planting.

  4. Early Ripening: You can enjoy the delectable harvest of Midpride peaches relatively early in the summer, adding to the excitement of your gardening season.

  5. Ornamental Value: In addition to its fruit-bearing qualities, the Midpride Peach Tree offers ornamental value with its attractive blossoms in the spring, enhancing the beauty of your landscape.

The Midpride Peach Tree is a wonderful addition to any garden or orchard, providing both aesthetic charm and delicious fruit. Its semi-dwarf size, early ripening, and self-pollinating nature make it an accessible choice for gardeners of all levels of experience. By following proper care and maintenance practices, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of sweet and succulent peaches from your Midpride Peach Tree, making it a cherished asset to your outdoor space.

Guarantee

Limited Dormant Tree & Plant Guarantee

* Claim deadline is June 15th

We guarantee that your dormant tree or plant will arrive in good, viable condition. If your tree arrives in substandard condition, notify us within 3 days of delivery. Please email pictures of the box, inside packaging, the tree and its roots to helpdesk@groworganic.com.  We will investigate your claim and process a request to exchange or refund the damaged product.

If your dormant tree or plant has not grown new leaves by June 15th, you may be eligible for our Limited Dormant Tree & Plant Guarantee. This guarantee provides for a store credit for the purchase price of the tree, excluding shipping. Please see the Instructions below.

Important Dates:

  • April 1st Dormant trees/plants must be planted in the ground
  • May 15th Perform scratch test, if no new leaves have grown
  • June 15th Deadline to apply for a dormant tree/plant credit

All required documentation must be received by June 15th for your claim to be considered. Claims or documentation received after June 15th will be denied, without exception. Instructions listed below

Terms and Conditions

We cannot guarantee that your tree or plant will remain alive and healthy after it is received, or bear fruit as there are too many variables in your environment that are beyond our control (i.e. soil preparation, weed and pest control, proper irrigation, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your growing zone, proper choice of pollinator, extreme weather, rodent damage, disease, etc.). 

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide a replacement tree/plant of the same species either that same growing season or in future years. Customers are responsible for all shipping fees associated with replacement trees and plants. 

If we determine that the tree you purchased directly from us is not viable, we will issue you a store credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of the affected dormant tree or plant. Shipping is not included in the dormant tree/plant guarantee. Store credits can be used to purchase any product we sell and are valid for use only until July 1st of the following year.

Historically, 98% of our dormant trees and plants grow and thrive when they have been cared for and planted using our growing guides. Dormant trees and plants must be planted in the ground by April 1st in order to be eligible for credit. If the ground in your area is still frozen solid, you may temporarily plant your tree or plant in a pot. 

Potted, non-dormant trees or plants are excluded from this guarantee as they are not dormant at the time of shipment. Evergreen trees such as citrus, avocado and olive trees are not available for credit under the Dormant Tree and Plant Guarantee. 

Instructions

We guarantee that your dormant fruit tree or plant will leaf out, if you care for it according to our growing guides. In the unlikely event that your dormant tree or plant does not have leaves by May 15th, follow these simple steps to apply for a store credit:

Before you call or email, please perform a “scratch test” to determine if the tree or plant is still alive. This video shows how to check for live tissue under the bark. Scratch tests need to be done a few inches above and below the graft. 

Green Cambium Layer / Living Trees

If the cambium layer under the bark is green, give your tree a little more time. It is still alive, but hasn’t come out of dormancy yet. Check to make sure that it is getting the right amount of deep root water, enough sunlight and that the weather is warm enough for that type of tree/plant to come out of dormancy. Every tree has its own personality and will come out of dormancy at different times. Be sure to submit the required documentation listed below by June 15th, if it doesn’t grow leaves.

Brown Cambium Layer / Dead Trees

If the scratch test shows a brown cambium layer or if your dormant tree/plant doesn’t have leaves by June 1st, please email us at helpdesk@groworganic.com. All required documentation listed below must be received by June 15th for your claim to be considered. To be considered for the guarantee claim, all required documentation must be received by June 15th.  Incomplete submissions will be denied.

Required Documentation

  1. Order number
  2. Name of dormant tree/plant and the quantity affected
  3. Photos of each tree or plant showing: 
    1. The roots (tree or plant must be pulled out of the ground)
    2. The scratch test areas
    3. The entire tree/plant

We reserve the right to not issue credit for items that have already been replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence that the tree/plant was not killed by root rot, rodent or mechanical damage.

Growing Like Gangbusters in Sonoma, Ca! (Zone 9a)

I purchased a MID-PRIDE and an EVA'S PRIDE peach this past winter, and both of them have just EXPLODED!
I won't lie; we have heavy clay soil that runs a bit more alkali than most fruit would prefer, and it's been slow-growing when we've planted fruit-trees in ground rather than in raised-beds/boxes in the past. So, I had my concerns from day one of them being in the ground. Some Compost mixed in, a little handful of Cotton-Seed-Meal, a (too small) Gopher-Wire-Basket, a bit of mulch and some crossed fingers - - that's all these trees needed!
In the past 5 months they have out-grown the two nectarine trees I'd planted A WHOLE YEAR before them! They got the littlest bit of Peach Leaf Curl (not anywhere near as bad as my older Nectarines did though!), but a 1/5 Hydrogen Peroxide spray after the rain was all it took! No Coper or Neem needed! Living in such a Low-Chill-Hour zone and loving stone-fruits can be tough, but the MID-PRIDE PEACH has *really* impressed me so far! Seriously - I wish I could post pictures - it's THAT good!

Surprise Snow Fall in San Antonio

I may be in for trouble, but so far, so good. The tree was absolutely fantastic when it arrived! I was amazed! Followed directions, got it planted, watered every day and it was beginning to "leaf out". Then south Texas had a "once in a generation" cold snap. I drenched the tree so the ground was good and moist and covered the tree and limbs with a plastic trash bag and crossed my fingers. 3 inches of snow later and 3 days of below 30 degrees Texas finally warmed up. Fast. Took the bag off yesterday and as expected, the leaves are brown and dead. The limbs and the tree itself however is still very green and flexible... so... Here's hoping. If this tree doesn't survive, it is NOT the tree's fault and I will definitely get another one.

Received shipment small trees

I received the shipment and they were on 3/4" trees instead of 1" trucks. only half the tree is just starting to show some leafs. I get the feeling if one orders later in the season you give them the smaller leftover trees. I purchased two trees last year and they were bigger and are doing well. I am concerned about this tree. the ones I ordered last year came in January, this time I ordered in March. Is that true that you send out the best and largest trees first?
