Planting and flowering details
Harvesting Details
  • Planting
  • ‘Donut’ peach will thrive in permeable, fertile soil in a sheltered, warm spot in full sun. A greenhouse or conservatory is of course also a good idea. Plant at intervals of 3.5-4 metres.

    Make sure the Prunus persica ‘Donut’ root ball is well-moistened before planting by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Make a large hole of 50 x 50 x 50 cm in good, loose soil. Plant the root ball at the appropriate depth - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and heel well in. Water immediately after planting

  • Care
  • Prunus persica ‘Donut’ is an easy-to-grow fruit. Provide it with extra water during dry periods. You should not leave too much fruit on the branches. Allow approximately 7-10 cm between the young fruits so that the peaches develop well.

    Harvesting can begin in August. Allow them to ripen off on a sunny window-sill, it will make them even sweeter.

    Place some compost around the tree in early spring.

    Pruning is rarely necessary for the 'Donut' peach although you can carefully maintain the shape of young trees. Prune some branches off the mature trees every 2-3 years.

  • Specifics
  • Prunus persica ‘Donut’ is a disease-resistant flat peach that will produce delicious, juicy fruits. The flat peach flowers in May and the branches disappear under a cloud of lovely pink flowers. At maturity the peach 'Donut' can become a fairly large tree. You can also train it along a south wall in a fan-shape – it will then require very little space.
