Try an Eldorado Miniature Peach Tree, a well known Jackson and Perkins variety, and you will have a tree producing exceptionally high quality, rich flavored fruit. These great tasting peaches are yellow freestone, with an attractive red-blushed skin. Harvest early to Mid June. The Eldorado is a dwarf variety, only growing to about 4 to 5 feet, so a great choice for those in urban locations in a large container on back porch or patio. 500 hours chilling. Self fertile. Shipped potted in soil to ensure the best possible start when planted in yard or garden. New planting.
The trees should be planted in a triangle (or box for 4) 24-30 inches apart and at a slight outward angle. The center limbs are pruned so that crossing limbs are removed. Otherwise, normal care is all that is necessary.
Pick a combination of varieties that are similar in growth habit and foliage texture. Varieties can be selected for mild winter areas, traditional fruit growing areas, mountains or deserts. Why not have fruit all summer long?
