- Golden Queen - From across 'The Ditch', New Zealand. DWARF Golden Queen is a clingstone which ripens very late in season (March/April). A nice golden skin and flesh colour gives its name. Famous for its canning abilities it eats just as well fresh and is a very popular variety the world over. Medium chill makes it a variety that can be grown in most temperate regions of Australia. Prolific bearing means it may require staking in its early years. Plant it in a tub or a large pot for easy gardening. Click here for current stockists
- O'Henry - The DWARF O'Henry is a brightly coloured large peach with a slight fuzz. The fruit is bright red, yellow fleashed and very sweet and juicy. It is a firm piece of fruit with a free stone and tastes absolutely delicious. The tree is self fertile and prolific and will require staking when young. Click here for current stockists.
- White GoldTM - A classic Australian DWARF peach originating from Bathurst, NSW. It is a large white fleshed mid season variety with fruit ripening in January. White GoldTM is self fertile and has a red skin blush and a cling stone. This mid season peach is ideal for bottling and cooking, and also delicious eaten fresh straight from the tree.
