Also know, are ornamental peach tree peaches edible?
Because the tree is developed for its ornamental characteristics and not the quality of its fruit, the fruit will likely be edible, in theory, meaning it won't kill you, but inedible in practice since it probably won't taste all that great.
One may also ask, are peach tree leaves poisonous? With some, the whole plant is poisonous; with others, it might be the flower, fruit, leaves, stem or sap. All parts of the peach tree, with the exception of the edible peach fruit, contain cyanide-producing compounds that are released when peach seeds, bark, and leaves are eaten.
Thereof, can you eat dwarf peaches?
