Description

About the Belle of Georgia Peach Tree

Grow old-fashioned Georgia peaches at home with this favorite peach cultivar, the Belle of Georgia! It originated in Georgia in the 1870’s and is known for being disease resistant. It is sometimes called the Georgia Belle. Peach trees are classified as prunus persica.

Beloved for eating fresh, the tree bears large quantities of attractive fruit. The white flesh is great for eating straight from the tree, canning, and freezing. It is a freestone peach (also known as melting peach,) meaning that the flesh separates easily from the peach pit.

The tree blooms with stunning pinkish red blossoms in the spring. The peaches ripen to a lovely peachy yellow with red cheeks. It is self-pollinating, but adding another pollinator nearby may increase the size of your crop.

Enjoying the Fruit

These peaches are firm and delicious. Enjoy eating them fresh and preserving them for eating throughout the year. Pair peaches with almonds or raspberries, and enjoy serving fresh peaches with cream and mascarpone. Few things taste more like summer than a delicious peach pie or cobbler!

High in both fiber and vitamin C, peaches also contain vitamins A and beta-carotene.

Growing Belle of Georgia Peach Trees

These fruit trees need full sun and well-drained soil. The trees should be pruned, and the fruit should be thinned to produce the best peaches.

Belle of Georgia peaches are disease resistant to bacterial leaf spot and brown rot. This tree requires 800 chill hours during the winter, meaning it needs that number of hours between 32° and 45° F to go dormant and properly set fruit in the spring.
