The perfect container tree for fruit and color

The beautiful and unique peach tree is here. Prepare yourself for tons of color, because this hardy tree has three seasons worth. Every spring the Bonfire Peach Tree bursts with shades of pink all over as beautiful blossoms emerge.

This tree's large blooms are a soft pink around the edges and have darker shades of pink towards the center, giving spectators a breath taking display. The sweet floral scent attracts butterflies and humming birds to give wildlife enthusiasts an exciting show.

Bonfire Peach Trees provide a tropical and exotic look, because their leaves first emerge a vibrant shade of red that darkens into a deep crimson color as temperatures warm up. Your family and neighbors will be constantly watching this tree to see what it does next!

Once fall comes around the corner the leaves will turn a bright golden shade of yellow for an attractive fall foliage display. Keep this tree in a container on your porch or patio to show off its colorful displays that last for months.

The colors aren't this trees only spectacle, the peaches are amazing too! Under the burgundy leaves large white peaches with blotches of red will grow that are perfect for baking. Their sweet and tart flavor are perfect for delicious peach pies and cobblers.

Not only will this peach tree produce tons of fruit, but it will do so without taking up a lot of space. This space-saving tree only grows to about 4 to 5 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide, making them the optimal container tree or the perfect fit in any garden as an accent tree or focal point.

This popular peach variety is selling out fast, we recommend ordering yours today before they're gone!

Just Arrived
FGT was amazingly fast processing the order, I placed it saturday night and they shipped the tree sunday. FedEx of course took their sweet time but once it arrived it looks great. I'll include a picture of it after immediately planting it in a pot, mind you this is after spending 5 in a box making it's way to the west coast.

I love the color of the leaves on this thing, some of them have these little green specs that I can't identify but I'll assume it's normal until something leads me to believe otherwise. The trunk on it is huge too, at least 2 to 2.5 inches thick on a 3'-4' tall tree.
Day 1, immediate transplant after opening the box. 3'-4' tree option, super thick trunk!

Arrived Today - Zone 6
It arrived in wonderful shape. I originally purchased it for my deck but decided to go ahead and plant in the ground inside my enclosed garden. I am originally a N. CAL girl and boy do i miss the peaches of my youth. I hope this works out. Please send any tips to keep it alive through the summer and through the winter. Thanks.

Not really sure as yet
The tree arrived a bit wilted. I have planted it and it seems to be making a recovery slowly but surely. I am really not sure about the growth rate and hardiness as I just received it but seems to be doing well in the ground in my area. In South Carolina so hoping it survives the winter, it can get down to 20 at times. I have a date palm (a real one!) so will treat this with the same tender care, so far the date palm is over 5 years old and thriving when they said they would not survive here. Lots of mulch and a sun cover all winter.

Love the Bonfire Peach
I thought this peach was like the one my parents had for years.. While not the same tree this one is beautiful and I'm looking forward to seeing it have peaches. It survived the winter and the spring blooms were beautiful and now I have burgundy leaves coming out.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bonfire Patio Peach Tree


Bonfire Patio Peach Tree Planting Diretions

The bonfire peach tree is quite eye catching with their rosy buds that appear in early spring and exotic looking leaves. This variety known as “Prunus persica Bonfire” perform their best in USDA growing zones 5-8. Bonfire peach trees are moderate growers maturing to a height of 4-5 feet tall and 4-5 feet in width.

Location: Plant your bonfire patio peach tree in well-drained soil in a location that receive full sun (at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day). Heavy winds and early frosts can damage the blossoms, so be sure to protect your tree by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.

Planting Instructions (in ground):
1) Dig the hole twice the size as the root ball and just a little shallower.
2) Loosen the soil in and around the hole so the roots can easily break through.
3) Use your fingers to separate the roots of your bonfire patio peach tree and gently 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.
4) Hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the site, tamping down the soil as you go.
5) Back fill the hole, apply water to settle the soil and remove any air pockets.

Planting Instructions (potted):
1) When selecting a container for your bonfire patio peach tree, be sure it has plenty of holes in the bottom as drainage is essential. The pot size should be 2 times the size of the one it initially came in.
2) A good potting soil such as Miracle Grow should be fine for filling in the open space, try to leave at least 2 inches in the top of the container for watering.
3) Choose a location on the patio, backyard, front/side of the house providing it will receive full sun.

Watering (in ground): Keep the soil around your bonfire patio peach tree moist, but not over saturated. Keeping the roots too wet can cause rot. Watering once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for a couple of hours is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again. During times of extreme heat, your tree may need additional water. Yellowing of the leaves is a common sign of over watering while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of under watering.

Watering (potted): Stick your finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is drying out, go ahead and water it slowly to allow the potting mix to absorb the moisture before you see it escaping the drainage holes and then stop. If there is some moisture present, leave it be until the soil dries a bit more.

Fertilizing: Fertilize your tree with a well balanced fertilizer such as a 12-12-12 formula. Apply in Spring before the tree pushes out new growth. Repeat this in the Summer and Fall as well.

Pruning: Bonfire peach trees should only be pruned while the plant is dormant without leaves. That is usually in winter or early spring before the leaf buds open up.

Pests: Check your tree regularly for insects and diseases. Caterpillars can form nests (egg sacs) on the tree which should be picked off immediately and spray your tree with a horticultural oil or insecticide.

Do I need two trees to get peaches ?
Debra L on May 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No...they are self-pollinating......however, you will get bigger crops if you have a suitable pollinator such as a Bonanza peach...Enter
If planted outside, can this tree do well in areas that don't drain well?
Kim L on May 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather. Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree.
Is this tree self fertile?
Angel S on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: from what I read when I ordered it, Yes.
As I have my tree in a pot and inside, The leaves dropped off over winter, Even though there was a grow light on it. Right now it's covered with flowers and a few leaves are starting to grow.
As the tree is young yet, I don't think I will get much fruit this year?
I do have other fruit trees that are flowing, Always
Keith
Is it already bearing fruit when it arrives?
jenifer d on Oct 2, 2016
