Attributes:
While peach trees are self-fertile and don't require another tree to produce fruit, planting two trees is recommended for a better crop (it will still require insects to pollinate its own flowers). Fruit trees need a minimum of 6-8 hours sunlight daily, and need water. They are not drought tolerant. Our standard Belle of Georgia seedlings are budded, while our dwarf seedlings are grafted to Prunus besseyi (Sand Cherry) and Nemaguard.

Chill hours (CU) requirement: 800-850. (Chill hours are the average hours of air temperature between 32 and 45 degrees F in a typical winter season). For best fruit production, calculate the chill unit (CU) for your growing zone to be sure it aligns with the CU requirement of this tree.
