Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Siberian C Peach

Thunderchild Flowering Crab is a hybrid crab apple known for its attractive and fragrant dark pink blossoms and deep purple mature leaves.

Tree farmers will find this hybrid appealing as a pollinator for other apples, while home growers will enjoy the red pome's ability to attract flocks of Cedar Waxwings in the early spring.

This species is reportedly resistant to fireblight.

The Siberian C Peach is a cold hardy peach cultivar, and the fruit is great for producing juice and fresh eating. This variety is native to the Gobi desert area of China, and is relatively true to seed. In colder climates they might not grow fruit reliably as they require a relatively hot summer for the fruit to produce.

Unlike most peach trees the Siberian C Peach doesn’t require thinning and is quite productive. The fruit are firm enough to handle mechanical harvesting.

While it is possible to graft other peach varieties to the Siberian C Peach, research has shown that the Chui Lum Tao Peach and Tzim Pee Tao Peach are better candidates for rootstock.
