Remember my cartoon on germinating peach pits?
I just finished sprouting another round. This time I stuffed about 60 pits into a bag without shelling any but a few.
Only about 8 germinated, as opposed to the 75%+ germination rate I got when they were shelled. It definitely makes a difference in success if you remove the kernels.
Here are some of the sprouts:
They grew like that in the fridge! Amazing, isn’t it?
These were planted directly into the food forest after this photo. I should be getting peaches off the trees within 2-3 years.
Germinating peach pits is EASY! Give it a try – you’ll be amazed.
