Wild peach tree ‘Donut‘ - Bare-rooted - Tree

Prunus - persica - 'Donut'
Description:
Beautiful blossoms and fruits — the ‘Donut‘ peach tree has both. The self-pollinating peach tree produces firm and sweet wild peaches. The beautiful pink flowers brighten up our garden in spring. The fruit tree can also be planted in a large pot on a patio, roof terrace or balcony.We supply the wild peach tree ‘Donut‘ as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical.The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. Pruning is not necessary. The hardy peach tree grows in well-drained soil. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.

Planting+
‘Donut’ peach will thrive in permeable, fertile soil in a sheltered, warm spot in full sun. A greenhouse or conservatory is of course also a good idea. Plant at intervals of 3.5-4 metres.

Make sure the Prunus persica ‘Donut’ root ball is well-moistened before planting by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Make a large hole of 50 x 50 x 50 cm in good, loose soil. Plant the root ball at the appropriate depth - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and heel well in. Water immediately after planting
Care+
Prunus persica ‘Donut’ is an easy-to-grow fruit. Provide it with extra water during dry periods. You should not leave too much fruit on the branches. Allow approximately 7-10 cm between the young fruits so that the peaches develop well.

Harvesting can begin in August. Allow them to ripen off on a sunny window-sill, it will make them even sweeter.

Place some compost around the tree in early spring.

Pruning is rarely necessary for the 'Donut' peach although you can carefully maintain the shape of young trees. Prune some branches off the mature trees every 2-3 years.
