Sweet, succulent peaches are ideal for growing at home. Although susceptible to frost damage early in the year, with a little care peach trees can be a welcome and productive addition to the garden.

For a good crop, peaches are best grown as a fan or espalier trained against a south-facing wall, in moisture retentive, well-drained soil. Peaches flower very early in the year, so avoid planting them in frost pockets – choose the most sheltered site in your garden.

You may need to protect flowers from frost to ensure good fruit set. Also there are very few pollinators around so early in the year, so pollination should be done by hand.

Prunus persica ‘Avalon Pride’ is a variety of peach discovered as a chance seedling in Washington State, near Seattle. It bears pretty pink flowers followed by large, juicy peaches from early August.

Propagated onto ‘Montclare’ rootstock, Prunus persica ‘Avalon Pride’ has medium vigour, and is less susceptible to frost damage than other varieties. Self-fertile, it doesn’t require a pollination partner.
