    Posted: 11 January 2016 at 5:05pm
Have any of you eastern North Carolina folks (or elsewhere on the central east coastal areas)ever heard of a Peach Plum tree?

My wife keeps wanting me to see if I can find one (or two if it needs a pollen buddy). She says the fruit tastes like and has the shape/size of a peach, but it has skin like a plum (no fuzz). She grew up in the New Bern area and had relatives in the Grantsboro area that had the tree(s) when she was a young lady (she still acts young...LOL).

I have researched extensively and have found a couple that do not seem to do well in the Eastern NC climate. I have asked the "chief nursery" folks at a couple of local places that sell plants/trees and they have never heard of the tree. They were both kind of young folks.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks Rick. I had been to a Clemson web site a couple of months ago, but had not seen that web site.

I did come across a Peacharine that is a cross between a peach and a nectarine. It sounds interesting and is self pollinating.

I may get the peacharine as an experiment.

Thanks!

Oh, the research has proved interesting in that I have read about a lot of hybrids that look good and I never knew they existed.

I would love to surprise my wife with the exact thing she ate as a child.

I'm guessing it was a nectarine, which is a variety of a peach not a cross.

After further questioning of my wife this am over coffee, she indicated it was the size of a silver dollar and not the size of a peach so I am now guessing a plum....heck, I kinda liked the idea of a peacharine...LOL!

And she finally got up with her aunt who has a tree like what my wife describes. She is across the Neuse river so I may ride that way and see if I can get something to identify it with to take to the Ag Coop folks for identification   

I do see some plums that have the texture of a peach.

Thanks Rick!

It's just a name for a large plum dcm. Size actually depends on soil and fertilizer.    I think I have some seedlings still around my dads house.

Thanks James.

Got one you want to sell?

I was going to plant two peach trees and my wife's fruit what ever it turns out to be, but now I might plant 1 peach and 1 Peacharine (if they like our climate)and a plum.

Thanks folks!

Be glad to give you a couple. Just remind me till I actually do it. My dad got his first from aFriend in Alabama long time ago. May take a few years to bear but his were silver dollar size.
