Carolina Belle Peach on BY520-9. Nematode Resistant Peach/nectarine (Spring 2024)


A full-flavored, freestone white peach. Also known as NCT13333.

This tree has a growth habit comparable to that of Redhaven, and it is slightly susceptible to bacterial spot. This variety is self-fertile and a second variety is not required as a pollenizer.

With bright red skin over a creamy white, firm, melting flesh, the flavor of this peach is often described as "honeyed." The fruit are large (3 inches), with occasional split pit. This is a freestone peach, making it a great choice for preserves. 

Carolina Belle is an improved version of Belle of Georgia, ripening about ten days earlier. It was developed by NCSU.
