This new offering was introduced by the USDA peach breeding program at Byron, Georgia. The fruit is large and highly colored with excellent firmness. Evaluations in Georgia indicate that the fruit develops color early but will hang on the tree for an additional 10 days to improve fruit size and flavor. Early trials in the Mid-Atlantic region indicate that this variety may be well suited for this area.

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.
