Answer: Bon giorno. I suggest you plant the tree into the garden as soon as possible. No need to seriously prune it for 3-4 years; but do pinch out low side shoots as it continues to grow upward. And no need to provide any protection in the winter time. For your information, peaches grown from seed are almost always inferior (in quality, flavor, productivity) to the parent or purchased peach.
