Extremely vigorous trees requiring regular pruning and thinning. Needs fertile, well drained soils. Tend to bloom early and may be difficult to produce 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.
All peaches are semi-dwarf (8'-14') on Citation rootstock, except Q-18 which is on St Julian rootstock. Trees are 2 years old and should begin to fruit in their 3rd year.
