Peach trees are a lovely garden fruit which offer both fruiting and ornamental qualities. The sweet and juicy fruits crop from June and are delicious eaten from the tree. Make sure the fruit is still firm! Beautiful display of pink blossoms in spring.
Picking times relate to growing under glass, therefore if planting outside at least two weeks need to be added. All varieties are self fertile. Early flowering outside make these trees prone to frost damage, so undercover growing is recommended. We supply peach trees in both white and yellow fleshed varieties. Fan training on a sheltered wall is an option.
