The Bonanza peach tree is a fruit-bearing tree that is known for producing medium to large-sized peaches with a bright red skin and juicy, sweet flesh. The tree itself is relatively small and compact, growing to a height of only 6 to 8 feet, making it an excellent choice for smaller gardens or even for growing in a container.
Its leaves are dark green and glossy, providing an attractive backdrop to the vibrant pink flowers that appear in early spring. These flowers are followed by the fruit, which typically ripens in mid to late summer.
One of the key benefits of the Bonanza peach tree is its self-pollinating nature, which means that it does not require another tree for pollination. This makes it an excellent choice for gardeners who may only have space for a single tree. The peach tree is also relatively easy to care for, requiring well-drained soil and regular watering during dry periods. Pruning is recommended to help maintain the tree's shape and to promote fruit production.
