PF 24-C Cold Hardy Peach on Nemaguard (Spring 2023)

You are viewing a tree that will ship in Spring 2023. You can also find trees for Spring 2022.

From Paul Friday's website: "This freestone peach ripens 24 days after Redhaven. This extraordinary peach had to be thinned very hard in 1999 when a winter freeze in Southwestern Michigan wiped out all other varieties. Then in 2002 there was a very late spring freeze (May 21st), and 15 varieties planted around this cultivar failed, but it again had a full crop. This is a very unique peach variety that has it all. This peach is large, firm, highly colored, bacterial spot resistant, and has excellent, rich flavor. I believe this is the best peach for anyone with a questionable peach growing location. The tree is very tough with strong natural right angle crotches and it blooms late. The fruit has much better size and quality than other varieties thought to be hardy such as Reliance and Madison.  April 4th of 2007 we had a very cold night with temperatures below 20° F and several nights in the low twenties following a very warm week. The preceding week of warm weather brought the blooms to an almost open state. This variety, deliberately planted in the lowest place on the farm, again came through with flying colors."
