  • Facts of note: Pixie Cot is a genetic semi-dwarf. Compact tree, will grow to 8'-10' on average. Container compatible. Resists root knot nematodes, but requires well-drained soil. Developed by Zaiger.
  • Pollination: Self-fruitful.

One of the earliest ripening fruits. Blooms very early; generally difficult to grow, especially in late frost areas. Needs well-drained, moderately fertile soil. Thin fruit early in season to maximize size and quality. Susceptible to bacterial canker, shot hole fungus, brown rot and peach twig borer. Harvest 2nd year. Nemaguard Rootstock resists root-knot nematode and is excellent for well-drained soils. In poorly-drained soil, plant on a hill. By pruning you can keep your tree at any height.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
