Peach Tree 'Duke of York'

Peach Tree 'Duke of York' Code: PNA028

£33.95 33.9500 In Stock New

Prunus persica 'Duke of York'

Originating from Hertfordshire in 1902, this early ripening peach is hardy, reliable and prolific. The large crimson flushed fruits are full of juice with delicious, melting white flesh. Grown outdoors the tree requires a sunny, sheltered spot - ideally a south facing wall.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Season: mid July.


Available for delivery: late November/December - early May.


 

As garden fruits, peaches and nectarines have plenty going for them. The spring blossom is beautiful and the fruits picked straight from the tree are deliciously sweet and ‘run down your chin’ juicy. They are best grown as a fan on a sunny south or south-west facing wall, although peaches can also be grown as free standing bushes in favourable areas. When mature, you can expect to harvest 15-30lbs (7-14kg) of fruit from a fan trained tree and twice that amount from a bush tree. Our peaches and nectarines are grown on the new Montclair semi-dwarfing rootstock which will restrict the size of the tree whilst improving yield and fruit size. A bush tree will grow 3.6m (12ft) in height and spread. A fan will grow to the height of a 1.9m (6ft) fence panel and 3.6m (12ft) wide. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order. All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
