Grafted plants in 4L bags, 80cm in height.
Rootstock: Okinawa rootstock.
Variety: White Opal peach.
The White Opal has a delicate white juicy flesh that melts in the mouth.
The fruit is a pale cream with a red blush, medium to large and cling stone. The fruit matures in December to early January.
White Opal peaches are low chill and prefer a subtropical temperature growing well in coastal areas from Sydney to Nambour Queensland.
The tree will grow from 2-5 metres depending on conditions but can be pruned to 2 metres to assist in fruit production and harvesting.
It is deciduous and can handle some frost but is best protected especially when young.
It is self-pollinating and will fruit in 2-3 years. Removal of about 80% of the fruit when it forms is recommended in order to get large peaches.
Covering the tree to ground level with fruit fly netting or 50% shade cloth prevents birds, flying foxes and fruit fly from damaging the fruit.
