We love dwarf stone fruit - you get lots of delicious golden fruit, but you don't need to find space for a large tree.  Our Pixzee Dwarf Peach is a beautiful standard ('lollipop') shape that will look fantastic in a large patio pot.  This self fertile variety is also suitable for warmer climates - a bonus for North Islanders!

Urban Bounty Dwarf Pixzee Peach trees are around 60cm high.

About Dwarf Pixzee Peach Trees

Although Peaches are popular across the globe, they were first discovered in China, where they have been cultivated for nearly 4000 years.   Today, they are a popular fruit in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern gardens.

Pixzee Peach is a good looking, compact Peach variety, grown into a 60cm standard or 'mop top' shape.  It is an early variety (harvesting around in December and January) that will bear fruit 3 - 4 years from planting.  Your harvested Peaches will be large and delicious with a beautiful reddish-orange colour.

This tree is perfect for container and courtyard gardening, as it only grows to 1.8 - 2m metres high. It is grown on a Golden Queen rootstock - the variety, rather than the rootstock, is dwarfing.

Culinary Uses for Pixzee Peach Miniature Peach Trees

Peaches are such a summer treat - the juicy flesh tastes tangy and sweet at the same time.  Peaches are a mainstay of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, but are also popular in many European dishes.  Enjoy the satisfaction of plucking fresh fruit from the tree and eating it on the spot! 

If any of your harvest makes its way to the kitchen, peaches are amazing roasted with marsala.  (See our recipe.)  This fruit is also fantastic in salsas, or paired with pork.  Use your crop for bottling, homemade jam or chutney, or freeze them for fruit smoothies.  

Growing Conditions - Compact Pixzee Peach Trees

Peaches thrive in sunny spots that are sheltered from wind and frost. Although established Peach trees are frost tolerant when dormant, spring blossoms can be easily damaged by early spring frosts.  They also do best in  fertile, well-draining soil.   

Pixzee Peaches are self fertile , but planting it close to another Peach encourages a bumper crop.  Companion plant with Borage, Marigolds, Chives and Garlic (to deter Codling Moth).   

Mulch (leave a clear space around the trunk) and keep well watered when young, in hot/dry weather, and when fruiting.  Keep your tree well fed by applying compost and a small amount of Morganics fertiliser in autumn and spring. 

Peaches planted in wet or humid climates can be susceptible to fungal diseases.  Keep on top of these to ensure a healthy tree and good harvest.

Prune Peaches in late summer or early autumn, after fruiting, but before damp weather sets in.   Once established, yearly pruning should focus on removing dead, diseased and crossing branches, and ensuring air circulation in the centre of the tree.  Prune stems that have borne fruit up to a half, and newer shoots up to one third.  It is also a good idea to thin the immature fruit when the Peaches are green and hard.  This encourages remaining fruit to grow large and strong, and reduces the weight on fruiting branches. 

Climate and Seasonal Planting Information - Pixzee Peach Trees

Pixzee Peaches are best planted in areas with some winter chill and protected from hard spring frosts.  Plant your Pixzee Peach in winter or very early spring, when it is dormant.
