The Highlights

    • A fantastic Peach, suited well to the UK's climate
    • The first variety with full resistance to Peach leaf curl
    • You can be assured bumper crops of fleshy, plump peaches with good size and full of juice
    • An excellent sweet flavour with peachy aromatic tones
    • Ready to harvest from August
    • Self fertile - will produce good crops without pollination
    • Montclare Rootstock: Max size H3m x W3m Rootstocks restrict the size of a tree to make it more suited for an average gardenMORE
    • Dwarf: Very compact max size H1.5m x W1m, perfect for pots Dwarf trees are pruned and trained to be suitable for growing in pots, on patios. This means they will be fine with their growth being restricted and produce a productive little tree
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE

Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

Bare Root
Our bare root trees are lifted fresh from the field, wrapped in a moisture retentive covering and packed straight away. You can be sure they will be fresh when they arrive. In winter, you can store for several weeks if kept in a cool, dark spot. Later in spring, when the temperature rises, you will want to plant within a few days of arrival.
9L Eco Pots
This tree is supplied in a 9L Eco Pot, which is approx W15 x H30cm. Eco Pots use 70% less plastic then traditional pots and can be recycled easily. A 9L pot allows ample space for good root development and can support a good size tree.
4.5L Pot
This tree is supplied in a 4.5L Pot, which is approx W10 x H20cm. A 4.5L pot allows ample space for good root development but are good for restricting. the growth of the tree into something more minature.

Tasting notes:

Sweet and juicy with a good depth of peachy, aromatic flavours

Hardiness:

Hardy
May require some protection from very late frosts as this can damage the flowers. This won't cause lasting damage to the tree but will reduce the yield of fruit that year.

Pollination group:

NA

Uses:

Eating, Making Jams

Rootstock:

Montclare
Peach varieties are usually grown by grafting them to rootstocks. This has benefits for pest resistance, genetics and the efficiency of propagation. Importantly, it also limits the height of a tree to a more manageable, specific height. Montclare Peach trees tend to only reach 3m tall, perfect for smaller spaces or those afraid of stepladders. They can also be trained to a smaller size by pruning or restricting the roots, by keeping in a smaller pot

Care Guide

Excellent Pest and Disease Resistance

Shows excellent resistance to the main pests and diseases for Peaches. Has a the best resistance to Peach leaf curl. You may see some damage from aphids and caterpillars, which can both be washed away with soapy water. Birds will eat the peaches. Reduce the risk of bacterial canker by pruning to improve airflow and remove rotting organic matter nearby.MORE

Water in well when planting - read on for ongoing care

Water in thoroughly when planting. For bare root trees, you won't need to water regularly going forward, only water in dry spells when needed. You should be able tell because the leaves will start to wilt and droop. If a container grown tree, it will need more watering until its roots are established. It should be watered every other day or so for the first few months. Then reduce to twice a week until autumn. In the second year it should have a established enough root system to support itself, just water when required as explained above for bare roots. When watering a tree it is important to give a good soaking. It is better to water heavy and less frequently than little and often as this encourages the roots to grow down into the ground.MORE

Full sun

Full sun means receiving direct sun for more than 6 hours each day during the spring/summer.MORE

Prefers well drained, loamy soils

Will tolerate less than perfect conditions but may not fruit too well. Will struggle in poorly draining soil.MORE

No need to feed

Don't worry, this isn't a hungry plant so your food bills won't be going up!MORE

Some structural pruning required

Some pruning should be done each winter to ensure that your Peach Tree maintains a productive shape. This can improve yields and prevent disease. Read more detail in our knowledge articles below.MORE
