This tree:
  • Produces oblong, freestone fruit with soft, yellow skin blushed with red. The light yellow flesh is of the highest quality—fine-grained, tender, and juicy. It is ideal for canning, freezing, and preserves.
  • Yields ripe fruit typically from early to late July depending on climate, usually a few weeks before the elberta peach tree.
  • Survives colder climates better than other peaches.
  • Begins to bear large crops at ages 3–4 and reaches full potential at ages 8–12.
  • Blooms pink in the spring.
  • Is available in standard and dwarf sizes. Our standard golden jubilee seedlings are budded to Nemaguard rootstock, and our dwarf seedlings are grafted to Prunus besseyi (Sand Cherry). Dwarf trees should be staked to help them bear the weight of the fruit and prevent leaning.
  • Has a chill hours (CU) requirement of 800–850. (Chill hours are the average hours of air temperature between 32° and 45° F in a typical winter season.)
  • Grows in a rounded shape.
