Our Prunus Persica Avalon Pride peach tree is more resistant to leaf curl (until one comes along wearing a level 4 bio-hazard suit). The resistance to peach tree leaf curl seems to improve until maturity so some treatment may still be needed until then. It has fruits similar to Santa Claus (large and red) which mature in mid-September and they are excellent eating/slurping/finger licking. We mean mature as in the flesh becomes softer, juicer and sweeter, not suddenly takes responsibility for its actions and volunteers to do some of the housework without being chased.
Apparently, it was discovered as a seedling in Washington State, now we assume state means location, not an emotional wreck.
Our Avalon Pride produces attractive pink flowers so just be aware of that around blossom time if your gardening ignorant partner presents you with a lovely bouquet. They may score highly in the romance stakes but your fruit yield will suffer!
Expect to see large peaches from the Avalon Pride around August time unless you have a neighbour with a warped sense of humour that superglues fruits to your tree.
It is supplied as a bush meaning that the first branches of the Peach tree start coming out of the trunk quite low down instead of having a section of clear trunk which gives you a conventional lollipop tree shape.
Time of Picking: Mid-September
Self-Fertile/Not Self-Fertile: Avalon Pride is a self-fertile peach, therefore it will produce Peach fruits without the need of a second Peach tree nearby.
This tree is available on a Semi-Vigorous St Julien Rootstock meaning the tree will reach an ultimate height of 3.6 metres.
We will include a message card included at no additional cost if required.

Fruit Tree Life Expectancy
Most fruit trees will give you AT LEAST 40 years of fruit. Pears can go to 70. Records of 200 year old trees exist but this is the exception, not the rule.
Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Fruit Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Fruit Tree Heights
Taller does not mean more value for money. A 1 year old fruit tree can easily be substantially higher than a 2 year old, this is because they are hard pruned at 1 year old to create the desired shape. Some trees have over 100cm of height removed. They can then have another pruning at 2 years old to increase fruit growing real estate. Most fruit trees will benefit from having a third to half of the seasons new growth cut back in the Autumn to prevent long whippy branches which break easily. Age and pruning completed determine real value.
Important Peach Fruit Tree information
All our garden Peach fruit trees are carefully nursery grown in pots and containers which means you can PLANT THEM ALL YEAR ROUND. Unfortunately all Peach trees do not winter (Oct-Mar) very well if left outside in their pots. We advise planting Peach fruit trees directly into the soil OR keeping them in a heated conservatory or greenhouse during the winter period if you want to keep them in containers.
