This low maintenance peach tree produces a green and crimson, white-fleshed fruit which is large and full of juice. This tree is hardy, reliable and a prolific fruiter. It is also self-fertilising, which means there is no need to purchase a pollination companion.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems. Peach trees are best grown fan-trained, although in the south of England, they can be grown as a free standing bush. Prune established fans in spring and summer; free standing peaches are best pruned in late summer, removing over-vigorous upright growth and some fruiting wood.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 5m (16ft)

Suited to almost all well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in a sheltered, full sun or partial shade location.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting fruiting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

Pollination

  • Self-pollinating
This tree and most other peach trees are self-fertile/pollinating. Fruit trees will only produce fruit if their flowers have been pollinated. This is usually done by flying insects such as honey bees, bumblebees, flies, wasps etc. This tree produces compatible flowers that can pollinate each other. This means that you can plant this tree without worrying about pollination partners, and be confident that it will bear fruit.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.

This is a typical example of our root wrapped trees that you will receive - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season. Please be aware that the compost around the roots is there just to keep them moist and will fall away when unwrapped, leaving a bare-rooted plant. You can mix this compost with your soil when planting your tree.
