Peach Tree

Peach trees will grow in zones 4-8 depending on variety and micro climate.

The very popular peach, Elbert a for example will grow from zones 5-9. However the best zones are 6 and 7.

Peaches are so good to eat they have songs writeen about them and even record albums named after them. 'Eat a Peach' said the Allman Bros Band. 'Plant a little garden - eat a lot of peaches' sings John Prine.

Peaches are popular fresh, dried and in cans, however fresh is best.

Contender is a freestone (as against clingstone) that is available as a semi dwarf variety, excellent for smaller areas.

McKay is available as a dwarf, excellent for growing in containers.
