Peach - Tropic Snow

Tropic Snow grows well here in Cessnock NSW. Lots of fruit in 2nd year. Great flavour and sweet. Ripened over 3 weeks starting 1st Dec, just after Sunraycer Nectarine which also did well here. | Glen - , 11-Dec-2009

Rapid growth, beautiful blossoms.  Something drilled into many of the tips (before winter), causing them to drop the tip leaves and weep.  I think it may be an aphid so pyrethrum will be used if it happens in future.  The tree is currently covered in gorgeous blossoms and new leaves are forming.

Planted: 2008

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Pest Control:

I will companion plant around the tree and use pyrethrum and exclusion bagging.

Peach - Tropic Snow (Grafted) 6/10

BJ11_old_address's Edible Fruits
Update: 1988 days 24hrs

Comments: -

 It is quite vigerous although this has been curtailed with storms removing branches. They have really kicked into gear for 'spring' (July) and is blossoming and budding like a champ. No signs of infection - but a few leaves indicate that the risk is still very much there. It appears that leaf curl can occur after leaves emerge. I'll definitely spray next year.

Flowers and leaves emerged in late July 2010. Alas fruit-fly struck and much of the fruit was lost. Next year I'm getting nasty and using chemicals!

These guys really struggled with the Perth summer in 2011. They seem to be getting hit by every pest and disease possible as they are clearly weakened. Leaves are pale in colour despite addition of water and balanced fertiliser.

Leaves were removed in June 2011 to encourage dormancy. The plants clearly need a break. Additional feed and TLC will be required next summer.

Jan 2012 - Most of the fruitletts were removed to reduce the stress on the plant for this summer. Plants haven't had much disease - but clearly are not enjoying being planted near the driveway. At over 3 m high now they are too large to transplant and have been mulched with pine bark to assist - but they are not ideal for the climate. Tasty fruit that was allowed to remain.

May 2012 - leaves removed by hand. Heavy pruning (this may reduce fruit, but will improve shape)

Planted: 2009

Height 1.5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 4

First Fruited: 3 Months from Purchase in Pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Winter

Pruned By: 30% in Autumn and Winter

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

hand removal of any nasty bugs or infected leaves. Natural predators also assist. The tree is pruned so that no branches or leaves are less than 1m from the ground - this seems to have prevented re-infection of leaf-curl

Newly planted in Semi shaded position/ more sun but sheltered while young from hot afternoon sun. Growing in a pot. Prepared pot base with a mixure of sand, quincan, potting mix. many plants doesn't really like our hot "full sun", so filtered sun would be better especially while young.

We have chooks that free range under also. loads of free fertiliser :)

This variety will extend the harvest time of my stone fruit. It is already in flower (March 2015) which surprises me as it hasn't dropped its leaves so I may pull the flowers off if sets fruit.

June 2016. This seems to be a slow growing variety. It flowered last season but failed to set fruit

Flowered and held fruit for a short time just after planting. (Purchased as a 165cm graft) The peach is now near 1 meter tall and as seen by the picture very health and happy in the northern tropics. Will give it its first prune in the new year.


Its now March 2017 the peach is some 2 and a half meters high with luscious growth all over, looking forward to a bumper harvest. Tree must really love where its planted as the growth rate has been outstanding and healthy.
