Just so, are ornamental peaches poisonous?
Ornamental peaches wouldn't be poisonous, they just wouldn't necessarily taste very good since they were bred for their flowers & general appearance not their tasty fruit.
Secondly, can you eat bonfire peaches? Bonfire Patio Peach Tree Growing up to 5-7' tall, this is also a good small feature over a perennial border or curb appeal in a front yard. The fruit is edible, though it's not one we'd choose for eating raw.
Keeping this in consideration, can you eat peaches from a dwarf peach tree?
Because peach trees are so showy in the spring -- they bloom with profusions of pink flowers -- many are grown as specimen trees. In fact, some dwarf cultivars do not produce edible fruit at all. On the other hand, 'Reliance' does produce edible peaches.
How do you prune an ornamental peach tree?

- Remove dead, diseased and damaged branches whenever they appear.
- Cut out the less vigorous of two branches that cross or rub against each other.
