The unique 4-in-1 Fruit Salad Tree is excellent for home buyers with a desire for a variety of fruit but lack the yard space to plant four separate trees. These trees are great for areas with low to moderate cold chill requirements (300-500 Chill Hours). Quantities are limited so make sure to get your order in early because the 4-in-1 Fruit Salad Trees typically sell quickly!
The 4-in-1 Fruit Salad Tree is a uniquely budded combination tree that offers four of the following five moderate-chill varieties into one outstanding tree. Elberta Peach, Fantasia Nectarine, Santa Rosa Plum, Blenheim Apricot and Babcock Peach are combined into a single tree and the smallest of the five limbs is removed at harvest to give you the strongest 4-in-1 tree possible. This cocktail tree will render its delicious ripened fruits from late June to early August, depending on variety and your growing zone. (Each limb is tagged as to variety.)
As with all multiple-budded trees, you must periodically prune back the more aggressive limbs. This stops one or two varieties from taking over the tree which will eventually cause the other varieties to fail.
