Nothing says summer like peach juice dribbling down your chin after you've taken that first delicious bite. Peach trees are easy to grow and tolerant of a wide range of soil types as long as they have good drainage. At Wairere we stock a carefully selected range of peach trees both modern cultivars and heritage varieties. Choose from cling-stone which tend to have firmer flesh – perfect for bottling or free-stone which are usually more juicy and ideal for eating straight off the tree. Some of our top sellers are Golden Queen, Black Boy, Paragon, Red Haven and the white fleshed Snowbrite. All peaches are high in Vitamin A and potassium, nutritious as well as delicious! Call in to the nursery at 826 Gordonton Road, R D 1, Hamilton and talk to Harry and Lloyd about the best peach trees for your garden or orchard. If you prefer, you can shop from our secure web-site and the trees of your choice will be carefully packaged and delivered straight to your door.
