Dwarf peach tree ‘Bonanza‘ - Bare-rooted - TreePrunus persica 'Bonanza'
Fresh peaches from our own soil
Looking for a miniature peach tree? That's the dwarf peach tree ‘Bonanza‘. We love it! This self-pollinating peach tree grows compactly, meaning that it takes up very little space. Despite this, the sweet fruits are nice and big. We grow our own fresh peaches in our garden. Alternatively, it can be planted in a pot on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. We supply the dwarf peach tree ‘Bonanza‘ as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical. The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. Pruning is not necessary. The hardy peach tree grows in well-drained soil. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.Show more
