Fairtime Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Fairtime’)

Fairtime Peach Tree

Good old-fashioned Fairtime Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Fairtime’) is such a pretty tree! From the frilly pink blossoms to the large yellow fruit with a delightful red blush, this is one of the best flavored and most dependable of the late-season Peaches!

Self-fruitful and always a big producer, Fairtime is perfect for all your usual Peach needs, including canning, cooking, preserves and of course, fresh eating! Plus the fruit freezes well, too, so we’re sure some Peach sorbet or ice cream for a hot day is in your near future!

Erupting into spring smothered in pink blossoms that will have every bee and butterfly on the block hovering around your tree! These fragrant flowers are a delight to sit beneath in the spring, then later in the summer when the glossy green leaves emerge to provide shade for a lawn chair or blanket! Be sure to plant near a window you pass often to watch the change of seasons from bloom, to leaf, to yellow fall color and to watch your developing harvest!

Planting and Application:

A large shade tree and impressive flowering ornamental for front and back yard shade and curb appeal, you’ll be grateful for its broad limbs and great shape all year long! Anchor front yard landscaping or set your home apart from the rest with this large specimen!

Fairtime Peach is considered self-fertile, but you’ll enjoy a much larger harvest when planted in groups of two or more, or in an orchard with other Peach trees. Prune smaller in the summers after flowering to control its size and make it more manageable for smaller yards to accommodate their own fruit tree!

  • Large Fuzzy Yellow Fruit & Red Blush
  • Yellow Freestone Flesh
  • Self-Pollinating
  • Late Season Harvest
  • Frilly Pink Fragrant Blossoms

Tips for Care:

Peach Trees need full sun, favoring morning sun, and very good air circulation. Prune to control size in summer, and when dormant in the winter prune to open canopy and remove dead, damaged or diseased limbs. Otherwise, they’re very low-maintenance fruit trees!

  • Full Sun & Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate & Consistent Moisture
  • Good Air Circulation
  • Prune Summer/When Dormant
  • ~700-800 Chill Hours

The Fairtime Peach Tree is a fantastic fuzzy gem of yellow skin and juicy sweet flesh!
