Pixzee Miniature Peach tree was purchased last year.  So far it has flowered and produced numerous little peaches that I picked off the tree. It seems to be living up to its name: it hasn't gotten much larger at all in the year that I've had it.

Gorgeous blossom show in the spring. This alone makes this one of my favourite trees in my orchard. Fruits ripen later in the season in the subtropics,susceptible to fruit fly but it is easy to net as it is only a small tree.I planted a second seedling...

Now this little plant stays small and definitely needs a great sunny position. Early sun preferably. I did get fruit however I got fruit fly as well. Next season I need to be far more vigilant.

This is a dwarf variety, but compared to my other dwarf peach it is growing painfully slow. I have fertilised it well and it is even in a better spot. PH is spot on, so I think it must just be the variety.

This little guy started off on the other side of the garden and then was moved to make room for a new chicken pen. It is doing pretty well considering the transplant.

Full of fruits so you must pick off and keep only a few. The remaining peaches don's seem to grow much bigger than a large golf ball. Could it be due to the small pot size ?

Just planted spring 2009.  Growing this one in a pot so it is easier to bag fruit against fruit fly.

Lovely shape and nice and small.  It is just having its first few blossoms and new leaves. Older leaves have just dropped also.

Suffers badly from peach leaf curl and since it never fully defoliates here, I never manage to spray before leaf set in June. Have never managed to get any fruit off them.

Never looses its leaves or fruits, but grows fast.
