Fruit is of very high quality, ripening 10 to 14 days before Loring with better color. Fruit is large and very firm. The tree is vigorous and productive with good resistance to bacterial leaf spot.

About Rootstock

Our peach and nectarine trees are grown on industry standard Bailey rootstock. If we need to purchase peach trees to supplement our own inventory, these trees are typically grown on Lovell rootstock. For a traditional, open center planting we recommend spacing the trees 12-14’ in row and 20’ between rows. For perpendicular V training, the recommended spacing is 6’ in row and 20’ feet between rows.
