I have just had the first Peacherine of the season.. I have been drooling over this beautiful fruit for weeks & I can say the taste was worth the wait.


Now to work my way through the tree before they drop on the ground & get gobbled up by the chooks. . they love them as much as I do!

    Hi I’ve just googled Peacherine Jam and your FB came up. I can’t find a recipe but looks like you have one! Any chance you can share it with me? I absolutely adore peacherines, and I’m about to plant a second tree. I’d love to make some Jam.

    Hi Nisha. It is a hard thing to find & I dont know where you would buy a Peacherine tree in Canterbury. It is the wrong time of year for fruit tree buying, & planting but your local garden centre may be able to get you one in winter.
    A google search found http://www.ediblegarden.co.nz in Palmerston North & Koanga Gardens has them.
    I attempted some grafts in winter but sadly none have taken this season.
    Good luck with your search.. definitely a fruit worth having :)

    Hi there

    Can you please tell me where I could buy a peacherine tree from. After many years of not seeing them here in canterbury, I finally had my first peacherine this week. Have now introduced them to my children who love them so much.

    Great to hear from you again Karen. Thank you for the kind comments. Yes, we eat as many fresh peacherines as we can (I’ve had 4 or 5 today) but if we get rain the brown rot hits them quickly so then I make Peacherine Chutney & Jam.
