Saturn (Flat Peach) Peach

Peach

Description: Saturn, also known as Java Peach is an unusual variety that crops small, flat-shaped fruits which look a lot like sugary doughnuts. Very sweet and succulent light orange flesh, ideal for children especially with its nick-name Sat-on! Clusters of stunning light pink flowers during the spring.

History: Thought to have been developed in China but it's exact origins are unknown.

Peach Growing Tips: Suited to well-drained and moderately fertile soils in a full sun position. Fan training on a sheltered wall (except north facing) is recommended to avoid leaf curl. Picking times relate to growing under glass, therefore if planting outside at least two weeks need to be added. Early flowering outside makes these trees prone to frost damage. Fruit is best picked when still firm to final ripening indoors.
