Oom Sarel Peach Tree 20L


Prunus Persica ‘Oom Sarel’

Oom Sarel bears large, fat, round yellowcling peaches. It is easy to grow, being a strong, vigorous peach variety

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

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

Oom Sarel has a low chill requirement – Harvest mid December – good for 2 weeks in the fridge.

If your peach tree does not receive enough chill hours, its flowers may not open, or they may have only a few flowers that open.

As they spread blight, tomatoes and potatoes should be kept away from peach trees. Also, avoid planting raspberry bushes near peach trees.

Planting chamomile and comfrey adds nutrients to the soil, serving as a natural fertilizer for peach trees.

Full sun, although they can tolerate some shade they will yield more fruit the more sun they receive and grow more vigorously. They are really easy to grow.


Peach trees can grow to about 8-10 metres tall. 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 but 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.


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.


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.


A rapid-release fertiliser with nitrogen can be given to your trees just before they flower. This will encourage the fruit and flowers to flourish. Just be careful not to over-fertilise them, as this will hinder the production of fruits and flowers.

Add one 200-gram Bag of Superfrass added to the soil when planting.

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


Prune the top and sides of your peach tree regularly in Spring and early Autumn to prevent it from 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.
