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.
