The Tropical Snow Peach is a stunning, frost-resistant tree with beautiful, fragrant white flowers that will bring a delightful charm to your garden. Perfect for USDA hardiness zones 7-10, the Tropical Snow Peach is an evergreen tree that can reach a mature height of 10-15 feet and a width of 8-10 feet. It produces a profusion of 3- to 4-inch-wide flowers in early spring, and its glossy, dark green foliage provides interest and beauty throughout the year.
The Tropical Snow Peach is relatively easy to grow, preferring well-drained soil and full sun. Though the tree can tolerate some shade, it will produce more flowers if exposed to more sunlight. In addition, the tree does best in neutral to slightly acidic soil that is moist but well-drained. The tree is drought-tolerant once established, but it does need regular watering during the first year or two to help ensure a strong root system.
In addition to its beautiful flowers, the Tropical Snow Peach produces small, edible fruits that are sweet, juicy, and delicious. They can be used in a variety of recipes, from jams to pies, or simply enjoyed as a snack. The fruit ripens in late summer and fall, and its unique coloration, with blended shades of pink and orange, adds a special touch to any dish.
