Prunus persica Tzim Pee Tao Peach
NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON
Ussurian Pear (aka Manchurian or Siberian Pear) is the most cold hardy of all pear species.
This self-pollinating pear bears white flowers in the spring and has good fall colour, making it an exceptional ornamental addition to any garden. However, it has a tendency to branch quite low and is often used in shelterbelts and hedges too.
It is primarily grown for its attractive flowers and pollination of other pear varieties, or as cold hardy rootstock, and is also an excellent addition to any shelterbelt.
Tzim Pee Tao Peach (TPT) is a very cold hardy peach cultivar. The taste and form of these peaches is reported to be similar to the other cold hardy peach varieties.
This variety is resistant to powdery mildew, but has a shorter window to accept successful budding and chipping. Because it is relatively uniform in height and stem diameter when young, it is easy to work with in orchard production. This variety has a strong taproot.
Many find this rootstock to be both hardy and higher yielding than others This is a favourite choice for those in the BC interior and in Southern Ontario. The Tzim Pee Tao Peach (TPT) is considered to be true to seed.
