Novadonna Peach Tree

R195.00

Prunus Persica Novadonna

Novadonna peaches are typically medium to large with a round to slightly flattened shape. They have beautiful golden-yellow skin with a slight red blush on one side. The flesh is firm, juicy, and sweet, aromatic. The peaches have a good balance of sweetness and acidity, making them ideal for fresh eating, baking, canning, and preserving.

The skin is dark yellow, blushed with red all over. The flesh is juicy with a yellow to orange colour and a non-melting texture.

 They are considered semi-dwarf to standard-sized trees, with an average height ranging from 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters). However, the size can be managed through pruning and training techniques.

Position

 Novadonna peach trees require total sun exposure, so select a planting location that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. The soil should be well-draining to prevent waterlogging.

Size

Novadonna peach trees grow to a height of about four mts with a spread of about four mts.

Soil Type

Loosen the soil in the area before planting about 1.5mts depth in your regular garden soil. Good drainage is essential. Place the tree in the hole, ensuring the graft union (the swollen area where the tree is grafted onto the rootstock) is above the soil line. Backfill the hole with soil and tamp it gently to remove air pockets. Peach trees are not fussy about soil type, although they prefer slightly acidic soil.

Mulch

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

Watering

Provide adequate water to your Novadonna peach tree, especially during the first few years of growth. Water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry slightly between watering sessions. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.

Pruning

Prune peach trees during the dormant season (late winter or early spring) to remove dead, damaged, or diseased branches. Also, thin out crowded branches to improve airflow and sunlight penetration, which helps reduce the risk of fungal diseases.

Fertilising

Apply a balanced fertiliser formulated for fruit trees in early spring before new growth begins. 

Use our slow-release nitrogen-rich all plant fertiliser. Apply 1 teaspoon every 4-5 months. The roots will absorb what they required.

Pest and Disease Control

Monitor the tree regularly for common peach tree pests such as aphids, peach tree borers, and fruit flies. Use organic pest control methods; EM Control is a reasonable and efficient option. Implement proper sanitation practices, such as removing fallen leaves and fruit, to reduce the risk of diseases like peach leaf curl or brown rot.

Harvesting

Novadonna peaches are ready for harvest in mid to late summer, depending on your specific climate. When gently pressed, the fruit should have a slight give and easily separate from the tree. Harvest the peaches gently to avoid damaging them.
