Sweet Peaches that Are Easy to Grow
The Snowbrite White Peach Tree is a stunning sweet white-fleshed stonefruit, with a fragrant and floral flavor.

This peach variety is also self-pollinating and will produce medium to large peaches with a large crop for years to come. Because of its white flesh, a common name for this red-skinned peach variety is the Snow White peach.
Blooming in early March, the Snowbrite White Peach Tree flower colors will signify the start of early spring. The Snowbrite White Peach Tree has small vibrantly dark pink flowers and will bring a breathtaking centerpiece to your yard or landscape. The color of the flowers replicates on the peach’s skin with a charming deep red blush.

SNOWBRITE WHITE PEACH TREE CARE
Grow this cold-hardy peach tree in USDA growing zones 5-9, and ensure at least 650 chill hours for best fruit production. To get a bountiful Snowbrite peach harvest, plant your tree in a sunny spot!
Moist, well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter is best to keep this peach tree healthy. An annual application of slow release fertilizer will benefit the tree for structural growth and increase fruit yield. Water thoroughly the first year of planting to establish a strong root system and during the fruiting period to avoid blossom drop.
The white peach tree size ranges from 12-15 feet in height, and 12-15 feet in width. As a semi-dwarf fruit tree variety, this peach cultivar is perfect to plant in smaller spaces. Prune your tree in late winter to encourage a vase-like shape.
It is a self-fertile peach tree but having other peach trees nearby will increase cross-pollination and fruit quality. These are not bare root peach trees, they are rooted in their nursery container in soil.
Tne Snowbrite Peach Tree is moderately resistant to pests and diseases and is susceptible to common peach tree diseases.

Once your Snowbrite White 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!
