Some Stone Fruit varieties ‘sleep in’...

Flower and leaf buds of different Stone Fruits wake up at different times as they emerge from Winter. Peaches and Nectarines are the first to flower, and have often grown their new leaves before Apricots and Plums show any signs of life. If you are an owner of Fruit Salad Trees with combinations of Peach or Nectarine, Plums and Apricots, please don’t worry when only half of your tree ‘wakes up’... the Plums and Apricots are simply having a sleep in!

 

Here at Fruit Salad Trees, we stock a wide range of fruit trees, which all boast different fruit on the same tree. Each fruit variety retains its own flavour, appearance and ripening time. We graft citrus, stonefruit and multi-apple trees. 

Our fast fruiting trees can be grown in the ground, or in pots on your balcony.
