Pruning: Peaches do require annual pruning to keep them healthy, strong, and bountiful. They are excellent fruit trees for espalier training too. To receive maximum sunlight and good air circulation, train these trees to an open center shape. Be sure to remove all rootstock suckers, dead and non-fruiting wood.
