I let a 'peach' tree grow where it had come up against my garden wall, practically in the shade of a Sophora japonica. This year the tree, not very old and about 2 metres tall, fruited for the first time. I have had seven delicious yellow nectarines from my 'peach' tree, with no work whatsoever. I guess I'd buy one if I needed one, but a peach tree from seed is a wonderful gift from Mother nature!
