Sunlight

The Snow White Peach Tree grows best in full sun (at least six hours of sunlight per day). Although they can tolerate some shade, they produce better in full sun.

Watering

Moderate watering. Water once a week by leaving the hose pipe at the base of the tree for several minutes.

Temperature

Half-hardy tree down to 0 degrees celsius. Young plants will need some protection from frost. Trees grow best in cold winters and hot summer climates.

Pollination Info

Most Peach Trees and their cousins are self-fertile and don’t need a partner to produce fruit; in most cases you can plant a single tree. The flowers’ pollinators love the nectar and pollen found inside their petals, which makes growing peaches easy!

Although most peach trees are self-fertile, they’ll have a heavier fruit set if they’re pollinated by another cultivar, so consider planting more than one.

Planting & Care Guide

Plant your Peach Tree in well-drained soil and make sure it will receive full sun (at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day). Protect your Peach Tree from heavy winds by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.

When planting, loosen the soil and make sure to dig a hole roughly 1-1.5m wide and just as deep. Then, place your peach tree and cover the roots with soil, watering occasionally as you go along to remove any air pockets. Finally, gently pat the soil down until the roots are completely covered.

Peach trees are not too finicky about the soil type although they do prefer slightly acidic soil.
