Honey Babe Peach
Dwarf Peach with Delicious Fruit
Honey Babe Peach is a dwarf, peach variety that produces succulent peaches mid-July. Plant a few in a sunny location where you have slightly acidic soil, perhaps on a slope with a sandy loam or in a side yard where you can watch your harvest ripen.
Honey Babe is even great to grow in a container for its first year or two, so can be a delightful conversation-starter on your patio or front porch.
Imagine delicate, spring flowers on a dwarf tree that provides you a delicious harvest in its first year…and you’ll be thinking of a Honey Babe! Reaching only 6-8 feet at maturity, and requiring only light pruning, your Honey Babe Peach is practically care-free.
You won’t even need a ladder to sample your delectable fruit each July. It’s the perfect choice if you love peaches but don’t have a lot of space, or much time to spend growing them.
Your Honey Babe Peach Tree produces a medium to large peach that is a beauty to behold as it dangles amid the lush, vibrant green foliage. Possessing a deep red blush over a yellow background, your Honey Babe is a masterpiece of peach perfection.
One taste of this superb peach, fresh from the limb, is sure to lure you again and again to its succulent, sweet flavor. Firm and freestone, this peach’s excellent yellow-orange flesh is perfect, not just for eating still warm from the sun’s rays, but also for use in a variety of culinary delights.
A little light pruning in summer and winter will help ensure an outstanding harvest, and although self-fertile, planting it alongside Nector Babe will further enhance your summer yield.
Honey Babe Peach is a genetically dwarf tree that will grow into a wide ornamental bush without pruning. Its lively, pink blossoms will be a delightful addition to your spring yard long before it graces you with its delectable harvest.
