Honey Babe Miniature Peach
Prunus persica 'Honey Babe'
Pronunciation: PROO-nus PER-see-kuh
|Description||The perfect peach for small gardens, or even in patio containers! This dwarf variety reaches only 5 to 6 feet tall, for easier harvesting and pruning. Showy, bright pink flowers yield sweet, yellow, freestone fruit in mid-summer. Partly self-fruitful; better harvest with a pollenizer. Recommended chill: 400 hours.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Dwarf variety; reaches 5 to 6 ft. tall.|
|Special Features||Edible, Compact Form|
|Care||Provide humus-rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first few first growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune to thin during dormant season; this results in new growth that produces the flowers and fruit.|
