Angel Peach Tree - Heavenly Sweet

    103 responses

Correy starts with ...
Here is the first forum topic on the Angel Peach Tree so if you have some questions or just want to discuss this exciting new variety feel free.

It is the second release from Plantnet who bought us the Pinkabelle Apple Tree which has proven to be very popular among backyard orchardists.

It is set to be released this winter and is a different variety to the China Flat peach and I am told the higher chill variety colours better (see pictures for proof) and tastes even sweeter. (I am guessing this is why they call it "Heavenly Sweet")

If you are in a subtropical environment like myself up here in Brisbane then you will want the low chill variety. For all you southerners who get frosts then go for the low chill variety.

Below are some stunning pictures of the fruit.

Hi David:

To get a High Chill Angel Peach Variety you usually need about 800-1200 chill hours. Which are hours where the temperature drops below 7 degrees.

Melbourne Minimum Temperature
June:7° July:6° August:7°
Brisbane Minimum Temperature
June:11° July:10° August:10°
Adelaide Minimum Temperature
June:7° July:7° August:8°

Canberra Minimum Temperature
June:1° July:0° August:1°
Sydney Minimum Temperature
June:9° July:8° August:9°
Perth Minimum Temperature
June:10° July:9° August:9°
Darwin Minimum Temperature
June:21° July:20° August:21°
Hobart Minimum Temperature
June:5° July:4° August:5°

From the looks in Adelaide you may be best going with the Low Chill Variety unless you are in a position that gets some good frosts.

Laura the angel peach will be trialed first through Daley's this winter then I would suspect it would be rolled out to other outlets.

John, I am getting one too, I haven't tasted one yet... But from the pictures they look great.

Anonymous: We are getting the high chill angel peaches in winter. Then a few months later the low chill angel peaches. I am guessing but most peach trees produce in 2-3 years.

David: The Angel peach is a totally different variety to the china flat. I would assume though that they are related.

I let it fruit a bit, so you get to taste it and to weigh the limbs down.

Don't over do it, one or two fruit per limb would be OK.

I don't buy into the no fruit logic some poiple have, seems like a waste of fruiting potential to me.

Does anyone know which nursery in Perth has the best stock of Pinkabelles and Angel peach trees currently in stock. I've been ringing around and most only have left overs (one or two)pinkabelles available and no peach. By reading posts about the peach and apple trees I'm very keen to get a tree of each very soon.

Pinkabella are avail in most Bunnings Warehouse Garden Centers .....
I saw heaps of them in Midland, Busselton, Bunbury, Rockingham and a few in Riverton? (High Street) and Belmonts stores in the weekend.

Angel Peach is available from most Dawsons and Waldecks, and Margaret River's Miter 10.

Good luck !!

Shaun, thanks for the info, really appreciate the help.
On a funny note, I think you will need to seek some help because I sense a very strong addiction to Bunnings. Your not alone, it affects most of us too. Travelling to the Belmont, Bunbury, Busselton, Rockingham, Midland & Riverton stores in one weekend which I estimate is an approx. 500km round trip is absolutely amazing..or you deliver plants to Bunnings, then your just doing your job. :)

Cheers!

The low chill variety is not available yet.
The Angel peach will do fine in most of Sydney's outer suburbs.(where it is colder)
Engalls Nursery at Dural has a good supply of Angel peaches and pinkabelle apples

Hey there, I dunno how old this thread is but oh well. We recently bought three stone fruit trees and one of them was an angel peach from bunnings. Because of space we thought we would give espalier-ing a try, so while the tree was dormant we put in the ground with a bag of composted manure and trimmed the roots (which were completely and utterly rootbound) and the branches, and tied the branches to some horizontal wires we put up. The other two trees grew and a growing fine, they havent looked back, but the angel peach, not bud nor leaf have grown out of it since we put it in about 2 months ago. all of the branch tips are shrivelled and look dead, but the main trunk looks fine, We can't figure it out! We have another different type of peach that was doing fine growing naturally without training, then one year it just stopped growing and all of the branch tips went shrivelled and died like the angel, we ended up cutting half the tree off trying to find some living branches! I dunno if it is of any help but when we got the tree there was a ball of very gooey sticky sap coming out of the trunk, we wiped it off by accident when we put the tree in and it came back and dried out, then the tree did the shrivel thing. So far the tree looks like its gonna go.
Please help!!

Hi all Peach lovers! Can somebody assist with a little angel peach problem. I purchased my plant 6 months ago as bare rooted stock from a reputable local nursery. It went into flower two months ago and then two weeks ago we got some peaches (now 4 in total). It is in a large pot with very rich soil... sourced from my worm farm / compost. All seems to be well with it apart from about 20% of the leaves that are showing signs of blistering and going a lighter green colour as compared to the healthy ones. Am I giving it to much love? Does it need a certain nutrients or is it under attack from a bug? Does anybody have an answer / solution... preferably natural as I enjoy chemical free. Thanks

Hi, I purchased one of these young Angel peach trees a few months ago, and have it in a 'general potting mix', in full sun. (No flower or fruit as yet). I am watering every evening, but the tips of the leaves are all going brown & dry. Can anyone tell me what might be wrong with it, or what I should do? Many thanks, John.

Possibly your potting mix has dried right out during one of those really hot days. Try adding some water crystals then water it thoroughly then give it some weak seasol and mulch it (not against the stem). If it's going to stay in a pot try to protect the pot from direct sun on it during the hot days because it makes the soil in the pot very hot which both dries out the soil( which can then become water repellent) and cooks the roots.

Hi janelle, this is the wrong time of the year for your peach to set fruit, should be in spring. For reasons unknown to me fruit trees sometimes flower and set fruit in autumn but the fruitlets never come to anything and fall off just as yours is doing now.

Hi Jantina - they lose about half of them only...it threw me a bit when it came to the first bordeaux spraying last yr - but I just did it anyway!?

I have been thinking that maybe the climate is too warm for high chill ... but can get too cool for low chill? Any thoughts out there?

I live in Port Macquarie NSW and my local nuresery has just sold me the temperate variety of Angel Peach. I questioned them whether this variety would set fruit and they said it was fine for our region. They claimed they never get the low chill variety. Winter nights here are quite cold between 0 & 8 degrees with a few nights nights below zero. I also get one or two frosts a year in my yard. Should expect any fruit. Thanks Steve

They should flower soon ie when the spring weather hits. Fertilise now with a general purpose fert, top up later with more nitrogen.

To be honest David- it's still a very young tree- so I wouldn't expect too much for the first few years. Also depends on what sort of weather you had when they flowered- if it was too cold or wet the bees stay away and you won't get many fruit (even if self fertile you need the bees to pollinate the flowers).

I have just bought my first angel peach tree, and I am very exited to find a peach tree for the subtropics. Will plant it out the next few days. Will give it a rich soil with lots of compost and also put some water pellets in there. Later i will give it some choc manure and blod and bone. Any other tips?
Hope it not the wrong time to plant it into the garden?

I bought a angle peach tree 2009. It produced lots of peaches the next year but all of them had some hard clear substance come out of the middle of the fruit. I picked all the fruit off the tree and threw them away. I was told it was from the hot spell we had last winter, do you think that would have been the problem. Also what month do you have to give them nitrogen and do you have to trim them. Mine is looking great.

My trees are nearly 4 years old and have had flowers on them once. The fruit dropped of after several weeks. I have not had success with these trees so if they do not flower and fruit this year they go to the dumb. Probably where they belong

Mine is going well. It drops maybe 1/2 its small fruit. It held around a dozen fruit in its first season, and this year it has around the same number already set to a size that shouldn't fall off, plus the straglers toward the top of the tree (fruit sets from the bottom branches to the top). And they are delicious!

My dwarf doughnut peach tree is oozing clear sap at the branch tips and also along some of the branches. Some of the new leaves at the tips are brown as well. Is this because of all the rain we have had and what can I do about it to save the tree. Otherwise it still appears to be quite healthy considering.

Those angel donut peaches are the most sickly hopeless peach tree I've ever seen and I've seen some bad peach trees in my non peach friendly soil that's for sure. But this one is at the point of being non growable. Really sucks because they taste good even from the supermarket. I guess the rootstock on the trees they have been selling is rubbish so I might see if I can find a decent enough bit of wood on my half dead tree to graft it on something else in Winter

My doughnut peachtree has flowered and now has heaps of leaves and actually looks great and even has some fruit appearing. As it is still Winter, should I be fertilizing or anything now or wait til it's warmer? I have added some sulphate of potash and seasol.

Janet, that should be enough. Dont give high nitrogen or it will throw the fruit. Just give it enough water to keep it from wilting and throwing fruit. Mine has hundreds of baby fruit on and I will have to thin so that it can carry what it can reasonably hold to full size and ripeness.

You just manually thin by twisting the small fruits. They get to be the size of small doughnuts, so make sure they each have enough room to grow and that you dont try to make it hold too many fruit, or it will give smaller fruit or abort many anyways.

The other big thing to take care of the tree is to take action against Oriental Fruit Moth. Exclusion bags wont stop its maggots from getting into stone fruit as the moth bores into the new growth, wilting the tips, then the eggs are laid in the tips and when they hatch the grubs make their way along the branch and into the fruit. They will get in through the tiniest holes in the top of your bags. When you open the fruit you'll find brown patches and a single maggot, rather than the scores that you'd find if fruit fly stung it. PlantNet have traps for them, and Annette MacFarlane, Green Harvest and otehrs have other controls that should help. If untreated you can still get a decent crop, but they make a massive mess of the tree and the older grubs bore into the wood leaving oozing mess everywhere.

Angel peach is good, but I do prefer the white flesh to the yellow flesh. Tropic Snow is top of my low chill list. tropic Beauty is okay taste wise, but outstanding in the late winter flower department. China flat is no 2 on my list, again its a white fleshed peach.

Tropic snow and China Flat are my favourite too - I actually added them to my collection a few weeks ago. I got Flordaprince too, just cos it's the earliest fruiting. Nice taste but not outstanding IMO.(Still better than most at shops.)

Hi all

This will be it's first trim/prune since it's established itself.
It's about 2 1/2 yrs old now.
I'm here on the border NSW/QLD.

Hi Vict - you havnt been reading past blogs on spraying - use your old fashioned Bordeaux on the trunk with more lime added = Ive been recommending the NEW Yates Liquid Copper since using last year and having very little curl on my Peacharine and other stone fruits = spray less and works so spray at least twice b4 bud burst and once at start of Bud Burst - if you spray when flowers are out is too late - :)

My tree has tiny fruit now also, has done for about a month. Yes very early this year. I pruned it back hard as it grew beyond dwarf size so won't get as much fruit as last year which gave a bumper crop. My chooks roam beneath this tree which I am sure helps. Have got the fruit fly traps in place.

I live in SE QLD, and purchased the Tropical variety of the Angel Peach. This is its third year, I was really looking forward to a great crop this year, had over 100 fruit on it (nearly 4m tall), but unfortunately the day before I was going to start picking fruit, the fruit bats attacked and I lost everything... Guess I need to get nets next year.

I have a quick question. I seem to get 2 types of fruit (60/40). One is the flat donut shaped variety, which taste great! The other are more egg shaped, and taste disgusting. If I open them up they typically have no pip and are just filled with a brown goo where the pip should be. About 60% of the fruit is like this.

Is this just how they are, or is there something wrong with mine. Its extremely healthy and during winter its covered in blossoms.

Any help is appreciated.
