Scarlet Prince Peach
Beautiful Blooms and Juicy Peaches
A brilliant red-pink bloom and a sweet, white-fleshed fruit – what more could you ask for in a peach tree? The Scarlet Prince Peach is a king among fruit trees. Quick to produce and fragrant in bloom, this tree is a stunner.
The fruit of this peach tree is a creamy, light yellow and pleasingly firm. Exceptionally sweet, it is ideal for desserts and preserves but might be even better eaten right off the branch. It’s a freestone variety, so the pits are easy to remove. They ripen in early August, leaving plenty of warm weather to enjoy peach cobblers and homemade peach ice cream.
The delicious fruit isn't the only remarkable trait of the Scarlet Prince Peach Tree. Early each spring the red-tinged flowers put on an amazing show. They cover the tree in brilliant blooms that carry a delightful fragrance. The display is reason enough to plant a Scarlet Prince.
If you choose a Scarlett Prince, you'll only need one tree, but you may want more to maximize your fruit production. It's a self-pollinating tree so it needs no other tree to cross-pollinate. All it needs is full sun and regular watering.
Planting multiple trees won't take a huge estate either. This tree is considered a dwarf. Its mature height of just 10-15 feet makes fitting it into your garden easy, and harvesting the fruit from its branches is a breeze.
This red-flowered charmer will be a sweet addition to your garden.
