PF Lucky 13 Peach on Nemaguard (Spring 2024)


A large, midseason, freestone peach.

This is one of the most popular releases from Paul Friday's breeding collection. The tree is a natural semi-dwarf with a spreading habit and branch angles at almost 90 degrees. It is cold hardy, productive, resistant to bacterial spot, and self-fertile; a second variety will not be needed.

Ripening five days after Redhaven, P.F. Lucky 13 is completely freestone. This variety produces exceptional crops of consistently large (2.75") fruits from an early age. The fruit remains on the tree more than 10 days after maturity, and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger, while remaining very firm. Growers around the country give this peach rave reviews. This variety showed strikingly hardy characteristics in Dr. Robert Anderson's wood hardiness tests where temperatures went to -18° F. in January 2004 in Geneva NY.

Any peach variety with PF at the front of its name is a creation of Paul Friday, Michigan peach breeder extraordinaire.
