Tropic Prince Peach Tree (Prunus persica Tropic Prince’)

Tropic Prince Peach Tree

Tropic Prince Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Tropic Prince’) is the hot climate royalty your landscape has been needing! Delightfully fuzzy red-blushed fruit ripen early in the warm growing zone season and are semi-freestone juicy yellow peaches! Not just healthy and productive, but beautiful too for edible landscaping and garden adornment!

Spring blooms arrive in drifts of fragrant pink petals and become sweet, meltingly soft and juicy fruit that’s ready to harvest as early as May or June in some climates. A healthy-sized tree with a taller-than-wide canopy, you’ll love the more narrow profile that fits better among existing landscapes and established orchards. Filling out in long, slender green foliage, they cast shade and add privacy to your landscape!

Tropic Prince is precocious, meaning it will fruit within a year or so after planting and becoming established in your ground. Hardy in USDA growing zones 8 through 10, these Peaches can be found growing well throughout Florida, into the Florida Keys and even some parts of the Caribbean! Good-sized trees when allowed to reach mature height without pruning. Otherwise, you can maintain them much smaller and trained more compact as needed.

Planting and Application:

Tropic Prince looks gorgeous from spring until fall! From the blooms to the fall foliage, these deciduous trees are highly ornamental flowering specimens and great grouped plantings all growing season! Plant one front and center in your front landscaping for everyone to drool over as the harvest ripens. Or adorn a back seating area with shady limbs and healthy snacks within arms reach.

Prune to any size for a hedgerow of fruiting trees, screening hedges and for easy inclusion among existing orchards! Use as a backdrop for your kitchen garden or vegetable beds or to sit outside a favorite window so you can keep tabs on your developing harvest.

Tips for Care:

Peach Trees need full sun, so provide at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Plant them in a consistently moist location that is well-drained and well mulched to prevent evaporation and insulate the roots from heat. Prune in late winter and early spring for size and to remove crossing, diseased and damaged branches.

  • Full Sun

  • Prune When Dormant
  • 150-250 Chill Hours
