HIGH YIELD OF PEACHES IN EARLY TO MID SUMMER
Nothing beats the taste of a juicy peach picked right off the tree! This dream can be your reality with the early June Gold Peach Tree!
This large yellow cling peach tree ripens earlier than any other peach in early to mid summer producing juicy, sweet peaches that are medium to large in size! The yellow fruit has a blush red skin with melt in your mouth flesh. You can get peaches in the first year of planting!
Contrasting the colorful fruit of this yellow peach tree is dark green foliage that lines the branches all year long until temperatures drop for winter. Being deciduous, the tree will slowly lose its green leaves for winter until warmer spring temperatures cause it to flush out with new growth. The spring also brings the lovely medium pink blooms that are slightly fragrant and will mature into delicious peaches later in the year.
This clingstone peach variety is perfect for eating fresh off the tree, working into cobblers or pies, or canning to preserve for later use. Plant this tree among other fruit trees in your orchard or as a stand alone tree in your home garden. It is self fertile, meaning it doesn’t need another peach variety nearby to cross pollinate. However, having more than one peach variety will increase fruit production which means more peaches for you!
June Gold Peach Tree Information
Prunus persica ‘June Gold’ can grow across the United States in USDA zones 5-9. The June Gold Peach chill hours require 450 chill hours under 32 F. This sweet yellow flesh peach variety prefers well draining soil that is slightly acidic and rich in nutrients.
June Gold has a moderate growth rate of 1-2 feet per year. The June Gold Peach Tree size can reach up to 12-15 feet tall and wide as a mature tree. You can and should keep the size pruned down to a manageable height and width so you are able to pick the peaches with ease. The best time to prune a June Gold Peach tree is in late winter or early spring after the danger of all frost is gone but before the leaves flush out for spring. This will give you the best visibility of the branch structure to make the proper cuts.
How to Plant June Gold Peach Tree
When your new peach tree arrives, be sure to take it out of the box as soon as possible and give it water. When you are ready to plant the peach in the ground, dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. You can roughen up the roots before you plant but it is not necessary. Place the tree’s root ball into the planting hole and backfill with native soil or amended soil like our Fruit Tree Planting Mix. Be sure to keep the graft union above the soil line at ground level for the best results. Press firmly to get rid of any air pockets and water thoroughly. We recommend mulching the tree with a thick 2 inch layer of mulch or organic matter to help retain moisture. In the first year of planting, the tree will need more frequent watering to establish a strong root system.

Once your June Gold Peach Tree order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.
Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.
No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.
Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.
We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.
Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?
Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.
Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.
Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!
Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.
Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order. Please use the chart below to see what your shipping charge will be.
Choose a planting location that offers adequate sunlight and shade in a low traffic area. Allow proper clearance for the mature growth size. Well-drained soil is ideal. Water regularly for the first planted year to ensure adequate water is available for establishing a strong root system. Prune as necessary to remove any damaged or dead foliage and to promote a well-balanced structure.
Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.
Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.
Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.
A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.
To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your plant our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
