Prunus persica 'Avalon Pride'

 

Peach 'Avalon Pride'

Peach trees bear fragrant, white flowers before the leaves emerge, and, once pollinated, develop small furry green fruit that gradually ripen through the Summer.Thin these fruits to to one or two per shoot, to encourage good fruit, and pick as soon as ripe before birds etc. get to them! Peach trees are usually grown as a tree, fan or espalier. They flower early in the season, and in cool climates may need pollination by hand, using a soft brush. 'Avalon Pride' is a relatively new peach bred for temperate climes and is ideal for growing in the UK. It has a good taste and is very juicy and is suited to most soils with a Ph of between 6.5 and 7.5 sand it requires little or no husbandry except for a mulch in spring and weeding around the base. The variety is suited to growing as bush, cordon, espalier or fan.

Planting

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Plant out new or container grown trees in Autumn, when the soil is warm which will encourage better root development

 

Propagation by cuttings

From Late Spring TO Early Summer

Take soft wood cuttings in spring to early summer. Cleanly cut up to a 10cm long stems, remove lower leaves and pinch the tip out, dip the stem into rooting hormone, fill a container/pot with suitable compost, make holes around the edge of it and plant the cuttings, water in well, cover with a polythene bag and place somewhere warm, lake the bag off twice a week to air the cuttings. Keep the cuttings moist until well rooted.Harden off when well rooted and pot on into individual pots increasing the airing to let the leaves to develop. Remove rotten, dying or dead cuttings regularly.
