Make sure the soil drains well and that it gets a lot of sun

I have been wanting to recreate my grandmother's back yard which had these, but I am nervous. Weather was different way back when with seasons. Now pgh has summer and winter :(

This is the website I was using for research. www.fast-growing-trees.com/Bonfire-Patio-Peach-Tree.htm

Hopefully yours will thrive!!! Yum!! They are great for taking!

Well, they certainly are pretty most of the time and they usually smell yummy! But, not very palatable, at least to me.

  • I live in USDA zone 9 so I cannot grow anything resembling peaches (or cherries) but I visited a friend in Georgia that had one of these on her patio and it smelled great but she said it did not taste good (but I had to see for myself) and it did not remain in my mouth very long.
  • It seems they can be used for canning, pie making and pickling.
  • I checked some web sites and it seems they usually say the same thing.
  • Here are some comments:
  • "From Edible Landscaping Nursery on Bonfire Patio peach "Fruits are cling stone with firm fruit used for canning, pickling, and pies. Can be eaten fresh but rubbery."
  • "The fruit are not toxic, just unsavory. So, for their food value unto human consumption, they might as well be toxic."
  • Here are a couple of very good links that have lots of care instructions. homeguides.sfgate.com/care-bonanza-dwarf-peach-tree-46166...

  • Hope you enjoy your pretty tree.

Just as a word of caution here is some information to remember:
"The leaves, twigs and stems are all poisonous and can be fatal if eaten, according to the North Carolina Cooperative Extension."
