Thank you joan I knew most of that info from high school I did soil judging and worked in a greenhouse but around here most people think a peach is a peach really there are a lot of stupid people around here and close minded I like free stones the best and the ever so hard to find white peach witch is sweeter and all together a better fruit for eating if you ask me

King, to find out your USDA hardiness zone, go to 

http://www.plantmaps.com/47872

Which says your Indiana Plant Map hardiness zone is 5a. 

Indian Ecoregion is 55b - Loamy High Lime Till Plains.

Indiana Average First Frost Map, Oct 21-31. 

Current Drought Conditions, Abnormally high.

Learn about the horticulture of peaches from your 

Midwest Home Fruit Production Guide  page 18

Now that you know this information, you can start looking for peach trees that will fit these conditions. One thing you have to look for is first frost date. If your peach tree is in bloom when a frost hits it, the cold could kill the blossom and you will have no fruit. The late frost doesn't matter. 

I live in eastern Washington state, in zone 5 and I gave up on peach trees. The early frosts killed the blossoms for too many years and I just chopped it down. 

Your local county extension agent can advise you, or a good nursery. Or, if you know of someone who successfully grows peaches, they will have advice. I like freestone peaches best and that may make a difference. 

If you want to Google for information, use keywords. i.e. peach, freestone, USDA Hardiness Zone 5a. I may be wrong on any or all my information, but at least this is how I go about picking a species of a plant in my garden. 

I look forward to what you find. Please keep us updated. Good luck!

Radishes
Comment by Idaho Spud on June 4, 2014 at 4:31pm

Or radishes?  Just thought of those.  That's most likely what they are.  You can tell I haven't eaten radishes in many years.

Comment by Idaho Spud on June 4, 2014 at 4:12pm
