Suncrest peach is a favorite fresh market variety. The peaches are large, very firm with fine flavored flesh. This yellow freestone has bright red skin over yellow. The Suncrest has frost hardy blossoms and is a consistent producer. Tree ripe fruit late July in Central California. Chill hours 700. Suncrest peaches are self fertile. Shipped potted in soil to ensure the best possible start when planted in yard or garden.
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?
