Ruby Prince Peach (Prunus persica ‘Ruby Prince’)

Ruby Prince Peach

Beautiful fruit tree royalty, the Ruby Prince Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Ruby Prince’) is one of the first peach fruits on the scene each summer with fuzzy gems of scarlet blushed fruit!

Self-fertile pink blossoms cover your tree in spring as the rest of the tree fills out in deep green foliage all summer and fall. The green backdrop really shows off the fuzzy golden-yellow fruit with a predominant red blush. You’ll enjoy a large harvest each year with very little work!

The succulent yellow flesh is sweet and juicy, ripening as early as June, you’ll enjoy delectable peaches for all your fresh eating, baking, canning, and barbecue desserts! Plant with a later ripening Peach tree to extend your harvest of fruit all summer!

Planting and Application:

Gorgeous flowering trees on their own, Ruby Prince can take the place of that flowering ornamental tree for front yard landscapes as well as that shade tree cooling your backyard seating and garden beds! Why shouldn’t you expect double duty from your landscaping?

Create a privacy or screening hedgerow by planting close together and keeping the lower limbs intact, or prune them smaller for a tidy specimen focal point that turns heads and slows down traffic all growing season! Prune to 8-10 feet tall to tuck into an existing orchard or smaller property with ease! Or try something unique and train Ruby Prince as Espalier!

  • Large fuzzy golden yellow peaches almost completely covered in ruby red blush
  • Vase-shaped form when mature
  • Yellow Peach that’s sweet, juicy with clingstone fruit
  • Fresh eating, baking, canning and grilled
  • Early pink blooms and early harvest

Tips for Care:

Fruit trees do their best in a full sun location, preferring the morning sun to dry the leaves. Plant Ruby Prince in an area protected from frost pockets in very well-drained soil. Peach trees prefer very highly organic sites with ample moisture throughout the growing season.

  • Full sun, ample moisture and fertility for the healthiest tree and fruit production
  • High yield and long hang time
  • 600-700 Chill Hours
