Peach Earligrande

R165.00

Prunus persica ‘Earligrande’

 

The Earligrande peach is medium to large fruit with a slightly oval shape and a pointed end. The yellow skin is blotched with red.  This is a semi-clingstone with yellow flesh. It has an excellent flavourful taste with a firm, fine, melting texture.

Peach trees require relatively cold winters. The chill hours are calculated under 7 degrees in winter.

The Earligrande peach tree has a low chill requirement, ready to harvest end of October and stores well in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Spray regularly with an organic pest control solution like Neem Oil. Start after pruning in July and every 10days to 2 weeks thereafter.

Category:

Position – Full sun, although they can tolerate some shade they will yield more fruit the more sun they receive and grow more vigorously

 

Size – Peach trees grow to anything from 4 metres plus, tall and wide. Plan the site before planting keeping the tree away from external walls, electrical lines and other trees. Plant in a protected area if possible as strong winds can damage branches and leaves.

 

Soil Type – Peach trees are not fussy about soil type although they prefer slightly acidic soil. Loosen the soil in the area before planting about 1.5mts depth in your normal garden soil and good drainage is important.

 

Mulch – Add a thick layer of pine-bark mulch keeping about 20-30cms away from the tree trunk. This will keep the soil moist and keep the weeds at bay.

 

Watering – Water every second day after transplanting for about a week, thereafter reduce to twice a week in dry or hot weather for the next 2-3 months.
Water every couple of weeks if there is no rain. Too much water can cause root rot, but do not allow the roots to dry out completely.

 

Pruning – Prune the top and sides of your peach tree regularly in Spring and early Autumn to prevent it growing too large which will also allow light into the centre of the tree. It will be easier to harvest the fruit.
Cut out dead or diseased branches completely whenever they appear and dispose of them immediately.
