I grow all sorts of hardwoods from seed- oaks, walnuts, hickories, ash, pines, etc. and I have avocado, corn, squash & God knows what else sprouting from the mulch bin.
Why not peaches? The peach trees here in Illinois mature & bear fruit for 5 or 10 years if we're lucky before they eventually succumb to peach tree borers. I have 2 young peach trees now that are bearing, but have cut 3 diseased trees down in the last 2 years.
Thanks for the common sense inspiration. I'm going to find some pits!

Good luck! the pros say nay but if you have room to play and don't mind replacing them every few years I won't argue with you.
