3 DIFFERENT FRUITS FROM 1 SPECTACULAR TREE

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 and plums all season.

This unique specimen is cultivated by grafting three single-stone fruit selections together onto the one remaining fruit tree-thereby giving you 2 fruit trees on a single trunk! We combine the best of each variety to ensure you get a healthy, hardy cultivar to 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 fresh off the tree for 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 harvest that won't require a tall ladder.

Overall, this tree is easy to care for and 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 costs on the rise, consider the money-saving value of being able to skip going to the supermarket and just walk out to your yard and pick tree-ripened fruit fresh off your own tree. And you'll have 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 to ensure you'll receive a healthy specimen, ready to provide you with years of prolific fruit production.

I planted this tree in late fall a year and a half ago. The very first summer we saw fruit, about six peaches and 17 nectarines (it produced a couple plums that didn't make it). We are now at the end of May in our second spring and the tree has doubled in size and is producing a ton of all three types of fruit. We did use a stake fertilizer made for fruit trees this spring and last. Not sure if that made a difference. I am very happy with the tree and would highly recommend it

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

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.

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

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.

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.

I have 2 fruit cocktail trees. The first one I planted had huge, delicious yellow peaches on it the very first season. The plum graft did not take. Instead of nectarines I got delicious small white peaches. The second tree had a few plums and some peaches this year, but it was not a good year for fruit here. On the whole, I was very satisfied with my trees; I've recommended it to everyone and friends are always amazed by the ""cocktail tree."" It takes up very little space, the fruit is excellent. They do need to be supported, as the fruit is very heavy, especially the huge yellow peaches.

Planted last Aug or Sept., seems it is growing pretty good, has grown about a foot since planted. Hopefully will have some fruit in one or two years.

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
December 31, 2012
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

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Fruit Cocktail Tree


Fruit Cocktail Tree Planting Diretions Your Fruit Cocktail Tree will flourish in an area that receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. Fruit Cocktail Trees prefer full sun, but can tolerate shade. If kept indoors place your Fruit Cocktail Tree by a large sunny window. South facing areas receive the most light.

Fruit Cocktail Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Add organic matter or potting mix to your soil to improve drainage. Keep your soil moist, not over saturated. Give your Fruit Cocktail Tree a slow deep watering once a week.

Early in the Spring, Summer and Fall fertilize your Fruit Cocktail Tree with a slow release all purpose fertilizer like 10-10-10. In the spring you'll see an array of flowers, white, pink and ruby red. The flowers will turn into a variety of fruit ready to be harvested in the Summer.

Your fruit is ripe and ready to be picked when it achieves full size and full color, with no hints of green on the skin. If your fruit feels hard, it's not ready. Your fruit should be soft and slightly firm to the touch.

This item had a lot to offer me and my two girls. They love peaches and I enjoy plums. The plums in the stores always seem so waxy as well.
Seth B on Nov 22, 2015
Limited space, easier than multiple trees.
Paul N on Nov 16, 2015
I wanted a dwarf self pollinating peach tree. The three types of blooms and multiple fruiting seasons of this tree will make the flower garden beautiful and supply us with fresh fruit for a much longer period of time.
Christopher A on Oct 7, 2015

how many hours of chill time does it need? I've had this tree for 3 years now. It's in excellent condition but it never produced. I live in zone 9

Had tree 3 years and no fruit? Tree is healthy.
Rudy S on Sep 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I, too, have had little fruit in 3 years: maybe half a dozen small peaches.
But the tree seems to be doing well.
Does this tree come with a root ball?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: yes - it has a nice size root ball. We planted ours last year. We had to dig a rather large whole. About 3 feet deep and about that wide to make sure it was nicely planted. Year 2 it is doing well. We don't expect fruit for a couple of years, but is has beautiful flowers and leaves. One fruit didn't do as well as others, but seems to be coming back now. Hope this helps.
I live in San Antonio Tx. Will this tree withstand direct sun highs of 104 and freezing conditions? Usually not lower than 20 degrees.

BEST ANSWER: The Fruit Cocktail Tree should grow fine in San Antonio. It can take the heat! Just be sure to follow the planting and care instructions.

When should I plant?
Larry P on Jun 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can plant this tree at anytime. Now is the best time as it gives the plant some time to really take strength for the winter.
For the first couple of years, you need to take out some of the peaches as peach is the strongest part of the tree. Plums will flower but they do not hold for awhile. My cocktail tree has 4 in one (Apricot being the forth).

I hope this helps.

Are the peaches juicy? Haven't had a juicy peach in so many years I'm wondering if they still exist.
Karen M W on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We've only had it 1 season so we pulled the fruit to help aid root establishment last year. The tree survived a colder winter than I can remember and is full of new growth and tons of fruit this season. I haven't tasted yet but the imagine it'll be great!
I live in south Florida. Will the stone fruit cocktail tree work here? Also, do you sell citrus fruit cocktail trees?
Amy W on Jun 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Stone fruit should grow well in Florida. I love my cocktail tree, I just wish it came with more than one tiny branch of apricots. Every other variety is quite substantial; I even got fruit my first year! I have not seen citrus cocktail trees on this website.

BEST ANSWER: like most fruit trees, slightly acidic is preferred. pH 6.2-6.8
When and how to prune this tree? Winter? Spring? They probably need different pruning for each type of fruit. First year I got about 20 large peaches, but the next year only about 6, probably because of not pruning it at all.. what is right way?
jenny_fate on Dec 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Routine pruning to maintain the desired shape and balance of your tree can be performed on an ongoing basis. To promote ideal health and growth, prune your Fruit Cocktail early in the winter. Prune roughly 1/3 of the current year’s growth, keeping all cuts above outward buds.
Cut back any vigorous growing branches and keep the tree balanced. Faster growing branches will deny slower growing branches of nutrients.
Fertilize your Fruit Cocktail three times each year with applications in the late winter, early summer and early autumn. Apply choice of either manure, compost or a slow release fertilizer mixed into the soil. Prevent fertilizers from making direct contact with the trunk of the tree.
Is November too late to plant this tree in Beaverton?
Tooran Y on Nov 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No - usually fall is a good time to plant trees. Just don't forget to water it until it gets cold enough that you wouldn't want your faucets to freeze. But here in Midland, Michigan I have been successful in planting trees in late September up to mid-October (but earlier is better.)
Can u supply these trees to INDIA?

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
