The description says ???blooms early to avoid late frost damage???. Can you explain that? Does it bloom earlier than most? Wouldn???t that make frost damage worse?

Searched hi and low for Loring Peach Tree.
Finally found Loring peach tree after weeks of searching. I have tried at least 8 different varieties of peaches and Loring tastes the best. This is the first bare root tree I have ever purchased and It looks great upon arrival. Thank you Stark Brothers. I will be buying more products in the future.

Beautiful
We planted our loring peach tree in the spring and it grew like crazy the first year, and we even had a "crop" of three peaches. They were very good. It is covered in blooms this year so I imagine we'll have quite a harvest this season.
