Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Pink Halo Peach is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Prunus persica ‘Pink Halo’

The Pink Halo Peach along with its sister plant the Scarlet Halo Peach are two of the new era of Donut style stone fruit. Pink Halo has it all, Great sweet sweet flavor with the perfect balance of acid to sugar. The white flesh with pink radiating into the flesh, make it an eating treat for the eye as well. The crunch of this variety will surely please those who like their peaches crisp. But the smooth juicy texture of a fully ripe Pink Halo peach will also satisfy those that like soft ripe fruit as well. This means a long harvest time from firm ripe to soft ripe. There is a bit of an ornamental quality to many fruit tree varieties and Pink Halo's clouds of showy pink blossoms in the Spring will certainly make a delightful background display for the Garden. The Pink Halo ripens in the mid season and the Scarlet Halo in the late season, plant both and enjoy great fruit for over 3 months. Donuts Peaches date back to ancient China and have long been considered special, even magical. Today we enjoy them for the intense sweet flavor, abundant production and their easy to eat size and shape. Great for fresh eating, they are the perfect size and shape for the lunch box. Great on the grill, half them width wise and grill them on medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender, oh is that so good!

Planting & Care

Peaches prefer light, well-drained. If poor drainage is suspected, consider mounding 12 to 18 inches high by 4 feet wide or build a raised bed of 12 to 18 inches high and 3 feet square. Plant directly in the mound or raised bed. Mulching helps retain moisture and stabilize the soil temperature. Mulch to 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 to 4 feet outside the canopy. Peaches grow best in full sun in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Water regularly, to get established, during the first year. Peach trees are very productive and will grow to 20' tall if you let them. Pruning in the summer to control the height of your tree is recommended to simplify Maintenance and harvesting.
