Modern homeowners are growing more fruit than ever before. The Edible Landscaping trend continues to explode, as people are realizing how fun and easy it is to grow their own food. The flavor of homegrown fruit is out of this world!

But, there is a challenge. Modern lot sizes are absolutely tiny! Our growers realize that few people have room for full-sized, commercial trees. Of course, you can prune fruit trees to keep them small, but how about a tree that stays very narrow naturally?

Then add full-sized, sweet, white-fleshed peaches with the most beautiful shell pink blush, and you have a winner on your hands. Blushing Pearl Columnar Peach Tree (Prunus persica var.nucipersica 'Blushing Pearl') is a wonderful solution for the modern backyard orchard.

It stays extremely narrow, and can be maintained at any height you like with simple summer pruning. The peaches are large and so tasty!

Blushing Pearl produces white fleshed fruit with pinkish-red blushed skin. This great selection has outstanding flavor with just enough acid to bring out the rich, sugary flavor. One bite will convince you!

Blushing Pearl Peaches make incredible fresh eating fruits, delicious warm from the sun when fresh-picked from your tree. They also make wonderful pies and preserves. Try dehydrating slices for use as a healthy winter snack.

The fruit has a good hang time on the tree while it continues to get more flavorful. That makes for a nice, convenient harvest for you and your family.

Blushing Pearl is a pretty tree. You'll want to feature it as an accent, with its clouds of showy pink blooms in springtime. The developing fruit creates a very attractive display, as well. You'll even get yellow fall color.

This is a self-fruitful columnar tree, so you'll get fruit from a single tree. But, you'll always get more fruit with a partner tree. Buy two or add additional columnar stone fruit trees to increase the size of your harvest.

Grow Blushing Pearl anywhere peaches are known to grow well. Since its introduction, this variety has been found to produce well in areas of low chill, 500 hours or less. For this reason, it is a good choice for planting in the lower chill areas of Zone 10.

Supply is very limited, and people across the country are searching for these trees. If you see Blushing Pearl in stock on the site, order right now!

How to Use Blushing Pearl Columnar Peach Tree in the Landscape

Columnar varieties like Blushing Pearl are particularly well-suited to high density planting. Use them in a hedgerow with other great columnar selections like Flavor Gold Nectarine and Sweet Sensation Peach. Plant the trees as close as 4 to 5 feet on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

Boost your privacy by letting them reach their full mature height. Why not create a wonderful edible screen to block any unwanted views?

Use these trees to soften the look of an ugly fence, or along the length of your property line. They can fit in tight side yards without any trouble.

Keep them pruned for size control for ease of harvest. They can be kept to any height you like with an annual summer prune.

The formal growth habit and attractive spring bloom and fruit display enable these to be used as vertical accent trees. Try a pair flanking either side of a sunny entryway.

Imagine a pair of them introducing your guests to an outdoor dining room. How fun!

#ProPlantTips for Care

Blushing Pearl Peach requires a full sun location. Find a spot that receives the drying power of the early morning sun to keep the foliage healthy.

Ensure the soil is well-drained. If poor drainage is suspected, plant on a raised bed or mound additional soil 12 to 18 inches high and 3 to 4 feet wide and plant in the mound. You'll keep a portion of the root above the soil line, and increase oxygen to the root system.

It is always a good idea to mulch the surface 3 to 4 inches deep to 3 feet outside of the canopy of the tree. This practice will cut down on moisture evaporation and help keep the roots cool in the hot summer.

Peach Tree Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for Blushing Pearl Columnar Peach Trees to bear fruit?

Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems that are already three to four years old, so you’ll enjoy fruit sooner than you would with younger trees! Expect a young peach tree to begin fruiting by the 3rd year after you plant it.

How Fast Do Blushing Pearl Columnar Peach Trees Grow?

Be sure to plant your peach in a sunny and well-drained location. Once your Blushing Pearl Columnar (Prunus persica var.nucipersica 'Blushing Pearl') has been established (after the first year), it can typically add 12-18 inches of new growth in a growing season. If your plants are adding less than that in a season, it may be worth your while to check the fertility level.

Where do Blushing Pearl Columnar Peach Trees Grow Best?

Peach trees grow best in well-drained, fertile soil in at least 6 hours of full sun per day or more.

Do You Need 2 Peach Trees to Produce Fruit?

All peach trees are self-fertile, however planting more than one peach tree that blooms at about the same time, boosts yields on both trees and extends your harvest time!

Harvest Times for Blushing Pearl Columnar Peach Trees

Blushing Pearl Columnars are typically ready to harvest in July to August. Keep in mind exact harvest times are subject to change depending on the hardiness zones they’re being grown in.

Early-Season? Mid-Season? Late-Season? The terminology can be confusing for new peach tree growers. Weather, climate and your tree determine when it’s ripe.

When Should Blushing Pearl Columnar Peach Tree be Planted?

Bareroot peach trees can be planted in spring when they are available in your area. Container-grown peach trees can be very successfully transplanted all throughout the growing season. Check for first and last frost dates for your area with your local County Extension Office.
