Characteristics: A fast-growing deciduous fruit tree with showy, pleasantly fragranced flowers and bearing sweet, juicy peaches. The lush green leaves turn a dramatic shade of golden-yellow in autumn.
Growth and Spread: Ultimate height and spread of 4-8m.
Care and Maintenance: Plant in a sunny, sheltered spot in moist but well-draining soil. Water regularly during dry spells and prune during spring and summer.
Period of Interest: Foliage interest from spring to autumn. Flowers in spring and fruit from mid-summer.
This persica peach tree is perfect for growing your own fruit, producing a reliable crop of peaches, ripe and ready to eat from mid-late summer. The fruits are around 7cm and are perfect for desserts or simply plucking and eating straight from the tree.
In spring, showy flowers appear, lasting a couple of weeks before the leaves unfold. These blooms vary from white to deep pink and arrive just as the garden is bursting back to life, adding colour interest to your garden.
Peach trees are ideal fruit plants for container gardening and grow well in large pots. They tolerate partial shade but flourish best in full sun. Choose a sheltered spot out of string winds and ensure the soil is kept moist but well-drained.
