Bonfire Patio Peach Tree Pollination
Bonfire Patio Peach Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Bonfire Patio Peach Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
Known as Prunus persica Bonfire, the Bonfire Peach Tree performs best in USDA growing zones 5 to 8. These trees are moderate growers, maturing to a manageable mature height that fits in any space.
1. Planting: Plant your tree in well-drained soil in a location that receive full sun (at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day). Protect your tree from wind by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home. Once you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice the size of the tree's the root ball and just a little shallower. Use your fingers to separate the roots of your Bonfire and gently position them downward in the hole. Then, hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the site, tamping down the soil as you go. Finally, water to settle the soil.
If you're planting in a container, simply ensure that the pot's size is twice the size of your Bonfire's shipped container. The new pot should also have plenty of drainage holes. Finally, choose a sunny location on the patio, in your backyard or front or side of your house.
2. Watering: Keep the soil around your Bonfire Patio Peach Tree moist. 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.
Tip: Yellowing of the leaves is a common sign of overwatering while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of underwatering.
3. 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.
4. 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- Fast Growing Trees
Just want to rave about this plant! Mine live in a difficult area, not much sun, poor air circulation, high humidity, unseasonable heat and cold. To make things worse I tend to move my plants around, Bonfire Peach has survived it all. Besides the lovely blooms and the color of the leaves, what I find especially delightful is the way their long leaves flutter in a breeze. Do place yours in sun for best blooming and fruiting. May not be listed as deer resistant but we have had no trouble. I have purchased plants from this source and will do so again for the convenience and availability of plants.
So far growing very nicely, lots of beautiful leaves
Beautiful red leaves on this nice little tree!
Beautiful tree in great condition, but one of the branches was broken. The other branches were in good shape with lots of fruit, so we just kept it and its doing great!
I received my first tree which was damaged, the growing stem had broken during transportation. We called customer service and they immediately sent me a new one. The 2nd tree arrived in perfect condition. I just have to wait to see how it holds up and fruits in the next couple of years.
