Peaches

 

Note: Ripening times based on the Adelaide HillsPeaches copy

All our peaches are self fertile except Million Dollar. Peaches grow in a range of soils. They prefer cold winters and a sunny position. To ensure large fruit, make sure water is kept up during fruit development. Thin fruit to maximise fruit size and to prevent brown rot.
