Prunus Persica ‘Oom Sarel’. Oom Sarel bears large, fat, round yellowcling peaches. It is easy to grow, being a strong, vigorous peach variety. Spray regularly with an organic pest control solution like Neem Oil. Start after pruning in July and every 10days to 2 weeks thereafter.
Peach trees require relatively cold winters. The chill hours are calculated under 7 degrees in winter.
Oom Sarel has a low chill requirement – Harvest mid December – good for 2 weeks in the fridge.
If your peach tree does not receive enough chill hours, its flowers may not open, or they may have only a few flowers that open.
As they spread blight, tomatoes and potatoes should be kept away from peach trees. Also, avoid planting raspberry bushes near peach trees.
Planting chamomile and comfrey adds nutrients to the soil, serving as a natural fertilizer for peach trees.
