peach tree

This year I discovered a peach seedling growing in a border, obviously a discarded stone from the previous years shop purchase. I transplanted it into a lawned area where I intend it to grow to maturity.Despite numerous frosts, one as low as -0.11C, and heavy snow fall the tree has not lost a single leaf and it is now almost the end of December.My other peaches lost their leaves at the end of November. is this a rarity ?

Depending in where you seed came from, many companies will pollinate with wild species, as to cut care costs on maintaining specific trees. These pollinators are usually wild varieties that will not produce any EDIBLE fruit but are very vigorous in vegetative growth. This could be the case in your situation. Unfortunately it will be several years before you can see if you will get any edible fruit from the tree, but you will know that it took the wild trait of being hardy. Just care for it and see what it does. It could be an edible fruit, or just a nice tree!
