The Gulf Crimson Peach is the answer to every sweet tooth’s quest! Perfect for peach pie or cobbler! They taste divine!
The Gulf Crimson peach tree offers deliciously sweet fruit that are large in size and have deep yellow-red flesh and will ripen beginning in mid-May through early June. This peach cultivar is self-pollinating and requires around 400 hours of winter chill hours.
The Gulf Crimson is exceptionally vigorous and features beautifully pale pink blooms. The peach tree was developed by the Agricultural Research Service in cooperation with the University of Georgia and the University of Florida to provide growers living in lower chill areas the opportunity to provide fresh, early season peaches.
It developed in a breeding program to create the ‘Gulf’ series of peaches. The yellow flesh of these peaches is called ‘non-melting’ which gives the opportunity for the fruit to ripen on the tree. The skin stays firmer which in turn lets the peach sweeten longer and have better quality and storage life.
Grow this peach variety in department of agriculture plant hardiness zones 8-10. Perfect for the southern United States!
This disease resistant fruit tree can grow up to 12-18 feet tall and 10-12 feet wide.
