Position

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

Size

Provide adequate spacing between Summersun peach trees, usually about 5 metres apart, to allow for proper air circulation and future growth.

Soil Type

Prepare the soil by removing weeds, rocks, and debris. Incorporate organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, to improve soil fertility and drainage.

Mulch

Add a thick layer of pine-bark mulch, keeping about 20-30 cm away from the tree trunk. This will conserve moisture and suppress weed growth.

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. Regular irrigation ensures the trees receive adequate moisture, especially during dry periods. Avoid overwatering, as excessively wet soil can lead to root rot.

Pruning

Prune your Summersun peach tree during the dormant season to promote its overall health and productivity. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches. Thin out excessive growth to improve air circulation and sunlight penetration. Pruning helps maintain an open center structure, which aids in pest control and enhances fruit quality.

Fertilising

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

Summersun peach trees will blossom in August and are ready to harvest around November.
