I am not any planting expert :), but the secret to planting any kind of pit is to let it dry out first.

Letting a seed dry out is a myth. But that's not the issue since it will dry quickly anyway. You can plant peach pits and they will germinate and make a tree that will actually make peaches but the quality of the peaches is usually inferior. All peach trees that nurseries sell are grafted with certain rootstock. I have several trees planted from pits and rarely get really nice, sweet peaches. Back to your question, there is little preparation. Just plant the things. But it's better to just buy a good variety of peach tree suited for your area.

I recall reading where they need to be put in the refrigerator or the freezer for a while before planting them. You could be successful just planting them but it might not germinate at all without mimicking their life conditions in nature. http://www.ehow.com/how_4891911_plant-peach-tree-pit.html
