The self-seeded Peachterine

Two years ago a little seedling came up in the tomato bed, it looked like it might be a peach or a nectarine, so I named it the Peachterine, took a chance and nurtured and cared for it.

This year it was covered in stunning pink blossom that has resulted in...
Peaches, white ones I reckon
Its doing brilliantly, and my next big challenge is keeping fruit fly away from it.

Yes, I know this is not a fruit fly
This year two more peachterine seedlings have popped up.  Can't wait to see how they'll go.

Peachterine - I think you might be onto something.
