Are the columnar 'crimson rocket peach' able to grow in containers, such as a whiskey barrel?
Michael A on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am growing a columnar apple in a barrel and it is are doing fine. I do move the barrels into our covered, unheated porch during the winter months. I am in Colorado (Zone 4) and it is too cold to leave a planted barrel outside in the winter months. So I move it to the shelter of the house in the winter from Oct. - May and then outside in the sun from May to Oct. I also do this with my miniature peach trees, although they are moved inside the house for the winter months. They are doing very well too.

Best tasting peaches!
These are my favorite peaches. Very heavy bearing, but produces large fruit if you thin excess fruit. They bear later than my other peach trees extending my harvest to a month or longer. They are sweet and juicy eaten fresh and make yummy cobblers.
