A T&M exclusive, Peach 'Lacrima' is the first ever edible weeping peach! This unique fruit tree bears its sweet, juicy fruits upon gently cascading branches for a particularly attractive display. Producing good yields of juicy, sweet peaches from the second year after planting, this unusual Peach tree is both ornamental and productive - perfect for planting in a prominent spot in the garden.

Propagated onto 'Montclare' rootstock to create a small, manageable tree. Peach 'Lacrima' is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Height and spread: 3m (9'). Rootstock: Montclare.

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water peach trees regularly during particularly dry periods.

Peaches may be fan trained against a wall or grown as a bush. When pruning peach trees it is important to avoid winter pruning as this leaves them prone to silver leaf disease.

To bush train: In the first spring after planting, select 3 or 4 well spaced branches on a clear trunk of at least 75cm (29"), and shorten them by two thirds. Remove the central stem to just above the highest of the selected branches. Remove any laterals below the selected branches.

In the following spring, select 3 or 4 sub laterals on each branch and shorten these by half to create a balanced, open framework. In future years peaches will require only occasional pruning to remove damaged, badly placed or diseased wood. This should be carried out during April. When fruits are walnut sized they should be thinned to one fruit per cluster, at a spacing of 22cm (9") apart.

Plant peach trees in rich fertile, well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. A south facing position is preferable to provide protection from damaging frosts. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. If the tree is to be bush trained then drive a stake into the ground prior to planting. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. For wall trained peaches attach support wires to the wall prior to planting. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake or support wires, and water well.
