Nowhere is the superiority of home-grown fruit more evident than when you bite into a peach off your own tree. When you tire of fresh fruit peaches can be used in many different ways; baked, canned, froze, pureed, roasted, and sauced into preserves. All our peaches are freestone (flesh separates from seed)unless noted. In cooler summer locations attractive espalier (two dimensional pruning) works well along a wall which provides extra radiant heat for fruit ripening. While peaches require well-drained soil, they are more tolerant of wet feet than cherries or apricots. Don't let the fear of peach leaf curl keep you from growing peaches; copper dormant sprays are very effective in controlling it. All of the peaches are self-fertile, except Indian Free and J. H. Hale.
