December & January Are Prime Time For Planting Fruit Trees

Texas A&M Agrilife

Hunt County Master Gardener Wayne Bowman says December and January are good months to plant fruit trees in Northeast Texas, including peach, apple and plum trees.  Wayne recommends planting bare-root trees because they're cheaper.  He says trees may begin producing fruit within two or three years.
