Hi everyone I'm after seeds again haha, this time I'm looking for anyone that might have a blackboy peach tree or know where I can get one or some seeds? We grow them everywhere in NZ where I'm from but I can't seem to find any at any fruit tree places over here in Aus. I've done a google and there are some around in aus but they are hard to come by so any help tracking down some seeds or plant would be much appreciated.

Cheers

I think they go by the name pleach in Australia, and sometimes come up in nurseries.

I have just discovered this thread and am very excited! As a fellow NZ'er I will be saving my pennies for an order next year. Blackboys are such a NZ delacacy but not nearly as common as they once were. I have such fond childhood memories of stealing my nanas peaches only to be found out by the big red stains on my face and clothes. My mother nearly coughed up a lung when she read how expensive they are!! For those who haven't tried these gems, you have missed out on the best crumbles, jams and other desserts they are excellent in :)

Did some investigation, and it revealed that JFT nursery propagates them, but they don't sell to the public. I purchased some from http://www.gardenexpress.com.au/product/peach-blackboy/ which just arrived today, but I notice they are already sold out!

I also see some getting sold here, and only 4 left:
http://www.hargravesnursery.com.au/peach-blackboy.html

thought I would spread the word, as my mother is from NZ, and has been chasing this tree a very long time. Can't wait to get mine in the ground.

yes, they are very popular in NZ. A hardy tree, with unique flavour. NZ'ers :morebow the fruit. Well, not really, but will be interesting if it ever takes off in Australia. Its also extremely popular in France, but goes by a different name over there, they grow them at the ends of the grape rows in vineyards.

They look great, unfortunately the variety probably has too high a chilling requirement to flower up here.

I showed this to my other half and he is drooling over it. Unfortunately they don't seem to be shipping to WA :-( We miss out on so many fruit trees (not fair!)

Nelly, Guildford Garden Centre has sold out for this year but are advertising that you can pre order for 2016, plenty of time to dig a hole.
