Peach  Cultivars

Information about peach tree varieties (cultivars ) including pollination groups, type of fruit and cropping season

Peach TreesAll peach fruit trees are pollinated by insects, however, unlike many other types of fruit trees, most are self pollinating so choosing the right peach tree cultivar is a relatively easy task and the only major consideration is one of personal preference as to the flavour. The information below will  make it easy for you to choose suitable peach  tree(s).

 

 

Most peach  trees are self fertile, i.e. they pollinate themselves with no need for another tree however do make sure to confirm this with the nursery or outlet from where you are buying your tree.
