Fruit Cocktail Tree

3 Different Fruits from 1 Spectacular Tree

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

If you love fresh fruit and have been longing to grow fruit trees but have limited garden space, this exciting multi-fruit tree is a must have. With our Fruit Cocktail Tree, you can expect to be harvesting bushels of ripe peaches, plums and nectarines all season long.

This unique specimen is cultivated by grafting three single-stone fruit selections together onto the one remaining fruit tree—thereby giving you 3 fruit trees on a single trunk! We combine the best of each variety to ensure you get a healthy, hardy cultivar that will provide you with years of fruit production.

Springtime will bring an explosion of color to your garden, when your Fruit Cocktail Tree begins blossoming. Fragrant white to pale pink to deep crimson flowers begin budding, drawing ooh’s and ah’s from all the lucky spectators.

By mid-summer you can look forward to tree-ripened fruit, picked fresh from your own orchard. Your harvesting season will provide you with an ample amount of fruit for snacking fresh off the tree, canning, freezing, cooking preserves, and baking pies and cobblers. On a hot summer afternoon, you could be enjoying some freshly churned peach ice cream.

Our Fruit Cocktail Tree is self-pollinating, adaptable to most soil types and will mature to heights of about 10-15 feet, ensuring a safe and hassle-free harvest that won’t require a tall ladder. Plum trees are typically more vigorous growers than the other specimens, so a little pruning will be necessary to keep the plum portion of your tree from taking over.

Overall, this tree is easy to care for and fairly trouble-free. It’s a rare hybrid that is not usually seen in your local garden center, so be sure to pick one up before we’re sold out.

With produce and fuel costs on the rise, consider the money-saving value of being able to skip that drive to the supermarket and just walk out your back door to pick tree-ripened fruit fresh off your own tree. And you’ll enjoy the peace of mind in knowing your fruit is safe and healthy, grown with no harmful chemicals or pesticide sprays.

Our Fruit Cocktail Trees are not sold as young seedlings or twigs, but rather they have been bud grafted by hand and given extra time in the nursery to mature and branch out. Initial pruning and training has already been done for you to ensure you’ll be taking delivery of a healthy specimen, ready to provide you with years of prolific fruit production.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Fruit Cocktail Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Fruit Cocktail Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Fruit Cocktail Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Fruit Cocktail Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Very cool tree. Didn't expect fruit the 1st yr but with the main tree being a peach tree we have about 40 peaches growing now! We're excited. One graft broke on a windy day so we recommend staking/stabilizing early.

By: marian cook
I ordered the fruit cocktail tree Spring 2012, and when it arrived it was very healthy. I planted it and so far, the nectarines are the only fruit that the fruit coctail tree is producing. Hopefully more fruit will grow--if not, next year hopefully.

By: Warren A
Just got done cutting mine down today. After 4 years, all it has produced is inedible golf ball sized peaches. You're mileage may vary I suppose.

By: Diana Cornaby
Love the tree, it is already producing, and I am anxious to see how the first crop turns out

By: Olivia Sordo
I was disappointed in the fruit cocktail tree. First, the plum graft dried up before it even bloomed, then the "nectarines" were not nectarines at all but small white peaches, which, while delicious, were not what I expected. The large yellow peaches, however, were outstanding, so I give this tree 3 stars.

By: James E
Bought this 4 in 1 peach in fall of 2011.

Planted as instructed and was surprised the first fruits this year of 2012. Had well over 20 which I was afraid of breaking the branches.

I believe the dogs got the fruit first none was found on the ground.

Most were a little larger than golf ball size but will work on developing larger next year.


By: Pete
Tree arrived perfectly wrapped and is doing well outside on our porch. We have had it for just about a year and it is healthy and full of leaves. No fruit yet but we were not expecting that for a year or too, So far I am very pleased with this tree.

By: George Heym
I was very disappointed by this tree. I ordered two early summer 2013 and both arrived very heavily diseased with leaf spot. I am still trying to nurse them back to health but they do not seem to be doing very well. I expected trees in better health and could understand how something small could be missed but these trees were obviously in very poor health but were sent to me anyway despite the relatively high cost that I paid.
I don't think that I will order again.


By: Penny
Fun experiment, but alas, my grandfather is laughing at me from his grave. The fruit has been sparse and inedible. After the first two years, the grafts died and all that has produced is the peach. Very oddly shaped growing habit. I'm glad others had more luck.

By: Linda I
I thought this was a great idea when I planted two of these in the fall three years ago. Now, I'm not so sure. I feel like they are just taking up valuable garden space. Neither of the Apricot branches lived. They didn't have any signs of life from the first spring then fell off as twigs. Now, one tree has all peaches and the other is all plums. Both trees were loaded down at the beginning of the season this spring with either peaches or plums then I noticed the majority of them fell off when they got to the size of a peanut m&m. I use fertilizer spikes for fruit tree from Jobes, which work great for my fig bush. If I don't use them it doesn't put out as much, so I know there is a difference. I pruned this this year and I do know how to prune fruit trees. They get regular water during dry spells and are in full sun most of the day(6+ hours)

By: nishat
I was very happy with the timely manner the product was delivered and packaged. The tree itself is of a bigger size then I imagined and it arrived still potted in its original pot. The tree seems very healthy and all the grafts seem to be okay,except for the plum; Its very small and thin I am hoping it will grow with the tree, although I know i will have very few plums in the first few seasons as the graft is only 5-6 inches long.
Overall the tree is healthy and I feel okay to give it 5 stars. Will keep you posted (god willing)

First order from FGT.com and was worried about how item would arrive. Was packaged and shipped very professionally. Communication and tracking info was great via FedEx. Double thick box was very secure, roots were well wrapped (15 gal wrapped in plastic), trunk braced well. Couple small twig branches were snapped, but nothing major. Tree looked in great shape, will update in summer as to how fruit supply is coming.
