  • Chill hours: 500
  • Bloom Time: Late Mid-Season (Based on typical Central Valley California weather)
  • Harvest: July 10 - July 25

  • Facts of note: Great fresh eating peach for market. Frost hardy blossoms. Consistent producer. This variety developed by the U.S. Horticultural Field Station Fresno, California in 1952 and released commercially in 1959. The Suncrest is a cross of Alamar, a popular peach for freezing which was noted for heavy production, and Gold Dust, the earliest producing top-quality peach. 1959. David Masumoto's memoir "Epitaph for a Peach: Four Seasons on my Family Farm" immortalized this variety in literature. Suncrest is part of Slow Food U.S.A's Ark of Taste.
  • Pollination: Self-fruitful.

Extremely vigorous trees requiring regular pruning and thinning. Needs fertile, well drained soils. Tend to bloom early and may be difficult to crop in late frost areas. Plant several varieties for continued supply, as ripe fruit does not store well. Susceptible to peach leaf curl, brown rot, oriental fruit moth and peach twig borer. Trees are 2 years old and should begin to fruit in their 3rd year. Citation Rootstock is tolerant of wet soil, induces early dormancy in dry soil, is very winter hardy, resists root knot nematodes, and produces a 12'-18' tree. By pruning you can keep your tree at any height.
