Product Information

Just imagine biting into your own juicy, homegrown peaches – perfect to enjoy picked straight from the tree!

With gorgeous pink blossom in spring followed by sumptuous red-blushed fruits, Prunus persica 'Suncrest’ is the ideal peach for your kitchen garden.

Despite their reputation as being a bit of a specialist fruit, peaches are remarkably easy to grow, and 'Suncrest' is well suited to the UK climate, being self-fertile with blooms that are relatively frost tolerant.

The large, firm fruits are called 'freestone', which means that the flesh separates easily from the stone, making 'Suncrest' great for eating and cooking, and it is definitely one of the best-tasting peaches, with an exceptional flavour.

Supplied as an established plant, 90-110cm tall in a 5L pot, ready to plant out now.

Top Tips

  • For bigger crops, use an artist's soft paintbrush, moving from flower to flower to increase pollination.
  • Try to keep the canopy dry each spring as the leaves emerge, to avoid leaf curl.

 

Care Information

  • Although frost-tolerant, it is still best practice to protect the blossom with fleece, and pollination should be helped by transferring pollen to other flowers with a soft artist's brush – mainly because there are very few insects around when 'Suncrest' flowers.
  • When fruit appears, it will need thinning. Remove poorly placed, small or misshapen fruits when they are about the width of your little fingernail. With peaches, aim to have a fruit every 15cm (6in).
  • Water container-grown trees almost every day during the growing season and give them a high potash liquid feed every couple of weeks.
  • Avoid excessive or irregular watering when fruit is ripening to prevent the skin splitting.
  • As the fruit develops it may need protection from birds and squirrels.
