I got a couple of peach trees today Georgia Belle and Alberta os something like that their Ht. average is 18-20 feet so I was wondering how long it will take for them to grow that big and can I keep them short by pruning them frecuently I can never find the dwarf ones.

The mature size will be reached at approximately ten years of age. While you can prune your tree to keep it slightly smaller - 12-14 feet, but you'll sacrifice some of the fruit. You can't keep a standard sized tree much smaller than about 12 feet without harming it.
