The dynamics of fruit growth of the varieties: Springold, Redhaven, Suncrest and Fayette in the ecological conditions of Ravni kotari were investigated. Peaches were grown in the form of a spindly bush on the rootstock GF 677. The results of the research are presented in tables and graphs. Fruit growth follows a double sigmoid curve, where two phases of faster growth and one phase of very slow growth are highlighted. The first phase of rapid growth lasts about 65 days for all four varieties. The second growth phase lasts 5 to 7 days in the Springold variety, 28 days in the Redhaven and Suncrest varieties, and 35 days in the Fayette varieties. The third phase of faster growth again lasts 14 days in the Springold and Redhaven varieties, 21 days in the Suncrest variety, and 10 days in the Fayette variety.
