3 Easy Recipes to Make From Your Peach Tree
The easiest fruit tree to grow in your backyard is hands down the peach and here's why:
1) They are self-fertile. You only need 1 tree!
2) They are small-you only need an area 15' x 15' to grow a peach tree
3) They fruit heavily.

Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream
This super-simple grilled peaches recipe has only five ingredients, making it perfect for last-minute summer entertaining.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut peaches along the seam all the way around and twist halves off the pit. Brush cut sides with grapeseed oil or vegetable oil. Cook, cut side down, on a hot grill until fruit has grill marks, 3 to 4 minutes. Brush tops with oil, turn over, and move to indirect heat. Sprinkle cut sides with cinnamon sugar. Cover grill and cook until sugar is melted and fruit is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream (sprinkle on extra cinnamon sugar if you like).
