This peach is the gold standard for canning, and lovely for fresh eating or cobbler, too.

How close can you plant peach trees to other fruit trees?
Michael R on Apr 10, 2021
BEST ANSWER: As long as you give the trees adequate space for growth they can be planted close and not have an issue. Rule of thumb and recommendation is if you are planting dwarf trees allow 8-10 between each other and if semi dwarf trees allow 12-15 feet between each tree.
I resently purchased baby gold peaches. They still feel firm, is it ok to freeze them now or should I let them ripen more?
Gayle P on Sep 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Its best to freeze them after they have fully ripened.
