Sweet Cap® Peento Peach

Prunus persica 'Sweet Cap®'

Sweet Cap® is a new peento-type or "donut" peach. It is flat with almost no pit, like a normal peach. It has attractive large, white fleshed fruit that are rosey red on a creamy white background. The white flesh is very firm and fine eating. It is juicy and aromatic with a nice acid and sugar balance. It ripens late in the season. Even though it is considered a "semi-clingstone", the pit is very small.

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.
