Prunus persica 'O'Henry'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Almost all peaches are self-fertile and require no pollinators. They will set heavy crops on single trees, which need heavy and aggressive thinning early in the season for best fruit size. Maintain good vigor in peaches by pruning every year, and fertilizing moderately. Aim for 1-3 feet of new growth a year. Fertilize early in the season, so that growth is well hardened off before fall and winter cold weather.


A Little History about O'Henry Peach

O'Henry was introduced from California around 1968. It was bred by Grant Merrill and is believed to be an open pollinated seedling of Merrill Bonaza, maybe crossed with a nectarine.
