FRUIT TREES FROM STONES
Can you grow fruit trees from stones? Yes, you can! But be prepared to wait several years before you get any fruit. Most pits and stones take three to four months to sprout and sometimes years to fruit, so if you are in a hurry, buy a mature, grafted fruit tree. But patience is a virtue. Peaches begin cropping in three or four years from planting out their stone (not too long in the grand scheme of things). Plums take longer, but the trick is to grow so many, and of various kinds, that you’ve always got something coming on and those slow-producers don’t matter.
