Prunus persica 'Stark Saturn'

Whether they are called Donut, Peento, Saucer, Pan Tao, Bagel or Saturn, the unique shape of this peach echos the original wild peaches first cultivated in ancient China. These fun throwbacks are shaped like a doughnut, with a pit where the hole should be. Saturn, patent #5123, is an early-blooming tree with large, showy, double pink, self-fertile flowers - and is best planted where spring weather is clear and consistent. At 300 chill hours, this is a great choice for our Southern growers! The very sweet, yellow fruit has melting white flesh.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Is this tree decease resistant? If not, will you recommend the most decease resistant peach variety that you may have for my area? South eastern Pa. Thank you so much, Michelle

    Saturn is known to grow well in that area

  • Does this tree grow in Olympia WA weather? Can it give fruit here? Thanks,

    Saturn peaches are susceptible to peach leaf curl and need a long growing season, so while it may be possible with a greenhouse or container planting, it will not do well planted in ground outdoors.

  • Is this desease resistant? I'm From Des Moines, IA.

    Not specifically no. Donut peaches are bred for shape and flavor, not disease resistance. If you need more information about growing peaching in your area please contact your regional Plant Ambassador through our Help Center.

  • I hear that this variety has good resistance to peach leaf curl, is that true?

    No, there are no white or donut peaches we carry that have curl resistence.

  • I live in Boston MA. Can I try growing the Saturn peach? We do have late frost here. Is there a way to protect the tree from frost or should I just not try it here?

    Peaches actually grow fine in Boston area, try a Canadian variety like Nanaimo or Salish Summer for best results.
