About the Florida Grande Peach Tree

Experience the essence of summer with the Florida Grande Peach Tree, a rare and unique gem in the Rosaceae family, alongside cherries and loquats. Thanks to the University of Florida’s breeding efforts, this low-chill friendly peach tree requires less than 100 chill hours, unlike traditional peaches that demand 600-900 hours.

This Florida Grande Peach is a true wonder, bearing medium-sized, red-skinned peaches with soft, melting, and yellow center flesh that boasts an excellent flavor. Watch as this tree delights you with perfumed pink blossoms in early spring, maturing into medium-sized, melt-in-your-mouth peaches in summer. The juicy freestone peaches deliver top-notch flavor that store-bought peaches can’t match.

With a large, lush canopy, this tree is a generous producer, ready to provide you with an abundant harvest. The fruit ripens mid-May, offering a mouthwatering treat for early summer.

How to Grow the Florida Grande Peach Tree

Growing the Florida Grande Peach Tree is a rewarding endeavor that starts with selecting a well-draining site, receiving at least 6-8 hours of sunlight daily. These trees thrive in USDA Hardiness Zones 8-11 and enjoy approximately 100 chill hours.

Plant your Florida Grande Peach tree in early spring, ensuring it receives regular pest control in the growing season and a rich compost layer in the slow season to nurture it through the dormant phase.

Enjoy this versatile fruit in various culinary delights, from eating fresh to baking, juicing, and preserving. Grow this tree in your garden and witness its ornamental value while relishing the joy of harvesting your own delicious peaches year after year.
