The Southern Flame peach tree will treat you to large fruit. Yellow skin overspread with red. Firm, crisp, melting, yellow flesh. Good eating quality and aroma. Compares favorably with commercial peaches. Freestone. Good for mld winter areas. Tree only reaches a height of 5 feet. Great for containers on decks or patios. Ripens Late July. Firm, crisp, melting, yellow flesh. Good for fresh, cooking, jams and jellies, freezing, and ice cream. Shipped planted in soil developed by Monrovia nursery.
The trees should be planted in a triangle (or box for 4) 24-30 inches apart and at a slight outward angle. The center limbs are pruned so that crossing limbs are removed. Otherwise, normal care is all that is necessary.
Pick a combination of varieties that are similar in growth habit and foliage texture. Varieties can be selected for mild winter areas, traditional fruit growing areas, mountains or deserts. Why not have fruit all summer long?
