I think I planted a peach pit in this pot last autumn. I planted a bunch, and I remember where I put some, but not every one. Now I've got a seedling but I can't be sure if it's a peach! Can anyone confirm (or deny)? Many thanks!

The leaves certainly look like peach leaves. It is hidden in the picture, but at that size the lower trunk of the tree should be turning (or have already turned) from green to woody brown.

it looks very much like a peach seedling to me If you planted the whole pit and not too deep, there should be the outer layer visible or maybe you can feel it just below the surface of the soil. What variety?

I think it was one of those cute donut peaches from the grocery store. They had a really tiny pit, compared to "normal" peaches.

I'll have a look; the seedling is actually about twice as big now--I took the photo last month.

Ed. to add: there is about 1-2 inches of woody brown right at the base.
