Rochester (Prunus 'Rochester') is the largest and most suitable of the yellow fleshed peach varieties for the British climate. Its flavour is excellent, with a delightful soft and juicy texture. Rochester is a regularly cropping peach. It also flowers late, therefore, avoiding most frosts.
Time of Picking: Mid August
Self-Fertile/Not Self-Fertile: Rochester is a self-fertile peach, therefore only one tree is required for pollination
This tree is available on a Semi-Vigorous St Julien Rootstock meaning the tree will reach an ultimate height of 3.6 metres.
Regular watering is a pre-requisite especially in dry and warm/hot weather. Our nectarine trees are grown in the UK so they are well-suited to UK climatic conditions.
We will include a message card included at no additional cost if required.

Growing Our Trees In The UK
To date, we have checked the passports of our trees and none seem to have sneaked off for non UK holidays so all are UK grown.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
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.
