Had white peaches Trees and are getting old, want to replace them.
ANTHONY P on Oct 17, 2020
There is something special about this peach. It's red and white colored with slightly fuzzy skin. The flesh is white with a sweetness that melts in your mouth. They are unlike any peach I have ever tasted. I have been looking for these trees to grow one in my yard and I finally found one here at Stark Bro's. If you only grow one peach tree... you should grow this one. Absolutely amazing!

I???m a complete newb at this but I ?????????????????? white peaches! It???s the only fresh peach I buy at the grocery store ????????. This is the year I finally chose to do something that I???ve wanted to do for years, grow & harvest my own peaches & fruit. I???ve debated & decided on the Carolina Belle because of the description, & the decent reviews. I???m planning to try espalier on this tree because I???ll be able to control the height as well as create a piece of art for my yard.

I have a Carolina Belle Peach tree in my small orchard. I've had more compliments on this peach from friends than any other. Three of my friends said it was the best peach they had ever eaten. Of my 10 or so peach trees it's my favorite.

What types of climate conditions cause shipping to be closed for some trees?? Could we place an order in advance have it shipped when weather conditions improve?
Kayla A on Aug 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. This happens because te ready date is in a time which you can not plant. You may call customer service and they may be able to book this in a future season that is perfect for planting.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
If I have more than one type of peach tree, will they cross-pollinate and produce hybrid fruit?
Kayla A on Aug 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. No they are self fertile and will only produce the peach stock you ordered. However having more than 1 variety will bear a larger crop yield.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!

My favorite peach
I bought my tree in 2011. This is my third year of fruit and I mean a lot of fruit.Baseball size peaches . Its the only peach my 15 yr old grandson will eat.Very sweet juicyand looks nice.I have been raising peaches for 40 yrs and this is my favorite.

Best peach tree ever, if I could only have one this would be it
This is one tough, beautiful, disease resistant, vigorous tree. I have one that's almost ten yrs old and produces hundreds of 3-4" succulent white peaches (unless the blooms get frozen, like all the other blossoms in my orchard this year). I've converted non-peach lovers and sell to customers and a fancy restaurant all from this one tree - I call it my money tree.

Interesting Flavored White Peach
The first year I had this variety, I considered pulling them. I just didn't care for the flavor. I decided to give them another year and I'm glad I did. It is a unique flavored extra large peach but is very popular with our customers. The only problem we have with this variety is, because of the size, they do tend to be "split pits" more than other varieties.

Great
This tree has been growing well. It has a couple of peaches on it this year. I removed the fruit on the first year per the instructions. So far so good.

Carolina Belle
We ordered this peach specifically because it is a white peach. We love white peaches. They seem to be sweeter and juicier than yellow types. Great tree.

Carolina Belle peach tree...
I purchased two, and though one did not make, the other is thriving. with approximately a dozen peaches on it this year already. I had these great tasting peaches maybe ten years ago and that tree also died after the fourth year and only one year producing. Thanks

Carolina Belle purchase 2015
Trees came in in good shape and dormant. After planting I noticed that one tree had no viable buds on the top half of the tree. After the trees began to leaf out the problem became evident. After careful pruning last winter the tree is looking much better now.

Love this dwarf peach!
I ordered and planted this tree in November 2014. It's now June 2016, and the tree has grown beautifully and requires very little maintenance. I expect to harvest peaches next summer.
