I don't think it's a wild peach as such, must be some hardy variety used
as a rootstock? If it ever suckers, I'll be in touch!
I was going to take a photo to post so you could see my problem,
unfortunately with all the snow we've had in the past week, I'll either
have to get the shovel out and clear around it a bit, or wait for some
melting to happen!
When I manage to get a photo, I'll post it.
