BRIGHT PINK FLOWERS & PROLIFIC FRUIT ON THIS FLORIDA PEACH TREE

The tasty FlordaKing peach tree is the best overall peach for North Florida —and for good reason! It was created by the University of Florida and has become very popular recently.

The Florida peach tree produces delicious red-skinned and yellow-fleshed fruit that ripens in May and requires 500 Florida King Peach chill hours. The Florida King will flower beginning in February and should be fertilized in early spring for best results.

This peach variety is semi-clingstone meaning its yellow flesh will grip the fruit’s pit even while eating. These fleshed peach stone fruits have a long shelf life and are relatively disease-resistant especially to black bacterial spots.

The cross-pollination from this tree is excellent for other peaches, plums, and nectarine trees. The FloridaKing peach variety is self fertile but will produce more fruit with other peaches nearby.

FLORIDA PEACH TREE CARE

This Florida king peach cultivar is low maintenance and prefers well-drained and sandy loam soils as well as full sun exposure. Watering regularly, especially during dry periods, will ensure good health for this peach tree especially during the first year of planting. Water thoroughly the first year of planting to establish a strong root system.

Prunus persica FlordaKing grows up to 15-25 feet tall and wide making it a perfect peach fruit tree for home gardeners or orchardists alike. Produces fruit in 1-3 years after planting.

A slow-release fertilizer will help the planted peach tree’s growing conditions. Apply at the base of the tree. Fertilizer helps with brown rot and peach leaf curling. As young peach trees, they require an inch of water per week during the growing season.

Prune the peach tree annually for diseased or dead branches. Prune the side branches and thin the fruit if the branch becomes too heavy.

This red blush variety ripens in the early summer months and grows in Florida KingPeach zones 6-9 of the southern United States. We have even seen these mature trees growing in central Florida and south Florida.

If you live in an area with warmer summer, you can always grow your peach in a large container and move to the shade in the hot summer heat. The same goes for areas lower than USDA zone 6, move the tree indoors in the winter.
