Peachcot Ora A

Yielded more than 40kg fruit this year (about 20kg fell off tree and was rotten due to rain) and more than 20kg eaten by us. Tree is kept pruned to about 2m high. No trouble with fruit fly now that soil is good and my edible area is kept well mulched

This fruit tree is well worth going to the trouble of bagging all the fruit, as I find it tastes very similar to a Golden Queen peach, which is my all time favourite peach, and I'm also trying to espalier one.

Grow like any other deciduous stone fruit. Spraying for fruit fly is a must. Prune and open canopy for good cropping. Water well during fruit set and fertilse early Spring. Seasol, mulch and potassium feeding improves vigour. Good flavoured fruit.
