Peach Bonsai Tree Material - Prunus persica

Whilst practically everyone is familiar with peaches few (in the UK) will have seen the tree that bears them. Prunus persica is a deciduous tree native to northwestern China. The specific name persica refers to its widespread cultivation in Persia (modern-day Iran), from where it was transplanted to Europe. It belongs to the genus Prunus which includes the cherry, apricot, almond and plum, in the rose family. This is the first time we have seen a peach tree developing as bonsai. However it has proved entirely winter hardy (in eastern England) and fast growing. This prunus is also very easy to re-pot and responds to regular pruning well. Keep in full direct sun all summer. In winter protect from wet conditions in order to prevent peach leaf curl in spring. Also spray with a copper base fungicide in autumn after leaf drop and again in spring before new foliage appears. Grown in a greenhouse we have had spectacular large peaches of this variety. Stunning pink flowers in early spring.

Now well established, all the branches have grown since this was potted. Rescued from an orchard clearance in Spain. Beautiful black bark. Some rudimentary carving has been completed. A beautiful trunk with beautiful black bark and a great nebari. We really don't know much about this variety but it all looks like a very promising adventure.

32" tall above the soil surface. 32" wide overall. 14" diameter root flare.

Planted in a plastic nursery pot.
