Growing native peach trees from seed is an amazing experience!
9.19.2011: "I bought some Iowa peach seeds from you in April of 2008. This is the first year that I have had a crop of peaches. As I write, I have my first batch of peach cobbler in the oven. They are the best-tasting peaches that I have had this year. Thank you again for turning me on to such a yummy peach. I am keeping the seeds so I can pass them out to my friends." Tammie R.
Commonly called Iowa White or Indian White Freestone, these native heirloom peach trees are rare, beautiful & productive. For more info/photos write: email@example.com & click "Visit our Listing" to see them blooming!
Force-germination/stratification is easy to do in the refrigerator in the spring, or direct seed in fall. Complete planting/care instructions included.
This native variety grew on Midwestern homesteads for generations. At farmers' market people remember these peaches from their grandparents' farms and are thrilled to discover them again. I propagate this amazing old variety because it's disappearing.
A unique peach, it doesn't self-pollinate so 2-4 trees can be planted 1 ft. apart & pruned as 1, or plant 10'-20' apart. Ideal for yards, habitat, museum orchards, farms ~ cold hardy, productive, a cloud of pink blossoms in spring and creamy, fine-textured, delicious fruit. Pick and eat fresh, can or bake ~ unbelievable flavor!
This is not "truck fruit"~you can't buy a peach this good at a store.
June 17, 2013: DEAR CUSTOMERS AND FRIENDS ~ PLEASE NOTE: The Local Harvest "Notify Me" service is NOT WORKING again. It says on each product "We can email you when [Catnip Farm] is back ready to take orders" but for a few months the notifications were sent out the same day they were requested ~ while items were still out-of-stock. Now they aren't going out at all. So again, please feel free to e-mail me as a back-up re: what you need at firstname.lastname@example.org. My store is mostly "on vacation" but I'm able to read e-mail letters & call you back. THANK YOU!!!
Large orders ship Priority Mail with DC. Most orders I can make in 2-10 business days. For toys see my store listing. Please order early for holidays & write to email@example.com if your order is URGENT, thanks!
