The peach is a deciduous tree native to Northwest China. Italy, India, Greece and the United States are the major peach producers today.

Peaches grow in a fairly limited range in dry, continental or temperate climates. The trees have a chilling requirement that tropical or subtropical areas generally cannot provide except at high altitudes.Most cultivars require 500 hours of chilling around 0 to 10 °C (32 to 50 °F) during which key chemical reactions occur, but the plant appears dormant. Once the chilling period is over, the plant enters a second type of dormancy, the quiescence period during which buds break and grow when sufficient warm weather favorable to growth is accumulated.The trees themselves can usually tolerate temperatures to around −26 to −30 °C (−15 to −22 °F).Climates with significant winter rainfall at temperatures below 16 °C (61 °F) are also unsuitable for peach cultivation.Summer heat is required to mature the crop, with mean temperatures of the hottest month between 20 and 30 °C (68 and 86 °F)
