zone 9 peach
Sandi M on Mar 16, 2016
Hello. I live in Houston (hot!) Texas, zone 9a. Peaches usually grow small (size of large apricots) out here. I want to try again with more heat tolerant variety and I was hoping you can tell me which peach would do the bestest out of these 3 (which would you recommend first) July (Kim) Elberta, Desertgold, or Sun Haven? Thank you.

BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry! I would recommend the Desertgold Peach for your location. This variety grows where peaches don't typically grow.

Desertgold Peach Tree
I am very satisfied with my Desertgold Peach tree. I was pleasantly surprised to see numerous peaches on my tree this spring since the tree is not two years old yet. I would definitely recommend this product to others. Time will tell how well the fruit holds up under the Arizona sun. Once I have harvested my peach crop, I will let you know how they fared with the heat and the quality of fruit picked from the tree. This may be the best peach tree that we've ever had.

Fast Growing
I live in Mesa (Phoenix) AZ and have been VERY pleased with this tree. I'm always a little worried about the 110+ degree heat and how a sapling will handle it. I'm happy to report that this tree has been very happy with this heat. I water once a week. I'm in season two and the tree has EXPLODED with new growth. The trunk has at least tripled in diameter. It is now about 7 ft tall.

Too soon to tell
This tree is a surprise. Honestly thought it died the first winter-it was planted in the fall-took a while to begin leafing out. Its still later than our other peaches in the spring, but is growing very fast. High hopes!
