A lesser known peach variety, but a delicious one nonetheless, the Crimson Princess Yellow Peach Tree is one you have got to try!
In early spring, light pink flowers are produced on the bare branches and eventually mature into the fruit we know and love. Producing medium to large sized peach fruit with an early June harvest date, the Crimson Princess Peach tree is perfect for backyard growers! The fruit is large in size, sweet, and mildly acidic in flavor. Mature peaches have mostly red skin with a firm yellow flesh that is thick but melting in texture.
This type of peach tree was developed in 2005 as a first generation cross using ‘Ruby Diamond’ nectarine as the selected seed parent and ‘Crimson Lady’ peach as the selected pollen parent. Being a clingstone peach variety, the melting flesh will cling to the rough pit of the fruit when ripe. Enjoy the peaches as eaten fresh off the tree when ripe, in desserts such as peach cobbler, or stored for a later date by canning and freezing.
Being a deciduous tree, it will lose its green leaves over fall and winter to prepare for dormancy. Plant this fruit tree in your yard where the spring flowers can be enjoyed near garden beds, as a street tree so all can pick a juicy peach (if you let them!), or in a backyard orchard to get a bounty of fresh peaches!
YELLOW CLING PEACH TREE CARE
Grow this yellow cling peach tree across the United States in USDA zones 5-9. Peach trees prefer well draining soil that is slightly acidic and rich in nutrients. An annual application of slow release fertilizer is recommended for best fruit production.
Choose a planting spot with at least 6-8 hours of full sun. This bright yellow clingstone peach tree has a vigorous growth rate and can get up to 12-15 feet tall and wide at maturity. Water the tree thoroughly at planting to establish a strong root system. A thick 2 inch layer of mulch around the root zone will help to retain moisture.
Crimson Princess Peach is self fertile and very productive. With all peach tree varieties, having another pollinator nearby will help with cross pollination and increase fruit load. Worried about alternate bearing? Don’t fret! This variety of peach is a productive & regular bearing tree that produces peaches every single year.

Once your Crimson Princess Yellow Peach Tree order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.
Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.
No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.
Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.
We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.
Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?
Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.
Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.
Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!
Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.
Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order. Please use the chart below to see what your shipping charge will be.
Choose a planting location that offers adequate sunlight and shade in a low traffic area. Allow proper clearance for the mature growth size. Well-drained soil is ideal. Water regularly for the first planted year to ensure adequate water is available for establishing a strong root system. Prune as necessary to remove any damaged or dead foliage and to promote a well-balanced structure.
Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.
Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.
Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.
A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.
To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your plant our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
