When should I plant fruit trees in Prescott Arizona Area?
I want to add a cherry tree and a peach tree. For the cherry I am looking for sweet. For the peach I need self pollinated and late blooming. I have a wonderful white peach (name unknown) now but it blooms so early I loose all the fruit to late freezes. I am north of Prescott (North Williamson Valley). Please recommend any options that will likely work for my needs . Should I plant now or wait until spring?
I would wait until next spring to purchase and plant. Our Yavapai County Extension Director conducts a fruit tree pruning workshop, usually in February, that is open to the public. It includes what to do when you plant fruit trees. If you would like to be put on distribution to receive notification about that and other workshops we provide please let me know.
