The innovative Fruit Me® series offers a range of self-fertile fruit and nut trees, grafted onto a brand new dwarf rootstock. These compact mini fruit trees are specially adapted for growing in patio containers over a long period, producing good crops from an early age. Perfect for balconies, terraces, conservatories and small gardens – in fact, anywhere that space is at a premium.

Fruit Me® ‘Peach Me Red’ uses the early variety ‘Talaia’. Recently introduced, this new variety bears good crops of juicy peaches for harvesting as early as June. The red-skinned fruits have firm, yellow flesh with a deliciously sweet flavour. The pretty pink blossom in spring makes this an attractive container plant too. With a compact, branching habit, this neat little patio tree is ideal for a sunny, sheltered spot.

  • Rootpac-R - Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 1m (39")

Feed and water patio peach trees regularly throughout the growing season. Fruit and nut trees do not suffer weed competition well so keep containers free of weeds. If growing peach trees in the ground, keep grass and weeds clear from within a 30cm radius of the base of the tree. To improve fruiting, move peach trees in containers to a cool, bright, frost-free position in the autumn, keeping the compost just moist. Top-dress containers each spring with a slow-release fruit fertiliser. For patio trees grown in the ground, remove any suckers at ground level in spring, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Peach blossom is particularly susceptible to frost and may require protecting with a layer of horticultural fleece if grown outside.

Like all members of the Prunus family, Peaches should only be pruned in summer to avoid the risk of bacterial infection. Patio peach trees will require only occasional pruning to remove damaged, badly placed or diseased wood.

Plant patio peach trees in containers holding at least 30 litres of good quality compost such as John Innes No.3. Alternatively plant them in rich fertile, well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. A south facing position is preferable to provide the spring flowers with protection from damaging frosts. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and water well.
