Q.Who Can Identify Peach Tree Rootstock Blossom?

Zone 94086 | Thaicat6 added on March 6, 2021 | Answered

One of my peach trees died and this year the rootstock suckers have made blossoms. (First 2 photos) These blossoms are a lighter pink and not clustered–Very different from the healthy Alberta peach blossoming next to it (last photo). Can you identify what these might turn out to be? I have read other peach or almond trees are used as rootstocks.

The most common cultivars used as root stock will be Nemaguard, Nemared, Lovell, Halford, and Guardian. There are many more used for root stock, however. It will be quite difficult to tell, but you could ask the place from where you received the tree! They would, likely, be able to tell you what root stock they use.
