Peach Tree - Avalon Pride

Prunus persica

This recently introduced peach appears to be strongly resistant to leaf curl disease. From a chance seedling found by a Miss Pride in woods in Washington State, near Seattle. She noticed that it was peach leaf curl resistant and decided to propagate her own tree. When she moved she decided to take the tree with her but just before the move a large bear dug the tree up and totally wrecked it! Left with a pile of twigs she managed to revive and propagate a further tree and move it to a bear-free environment. Trees are self-fertile with pretty pink flowers and bear large, deliciously juicy fruits from early August. Pollination group 4.
Grown on Montclaire rootstock which is highly productive with medium vigour. It also makes trees less susceptible to frost damage.

APRICOTS, PEACHES & NECTARINES - The advent of new rootstocks and modern varieties means that these lovely fruits can now be very successfully cultivated in the garden.

The best method is to fan train them against a warm south or southwest facing wall. Here the tree receives the warmth of the sun throughout the day and then benefits from the heat that has been absorbed by the bricks through the time when in shade or darkness. Thus the fruits will ripen with little check become large and sweet (note that if a suitable wall is not available a warm fence or trellis in a sheltered sunny part of the garden is a very good second choice).

Before planting erect a trellis against the wall. The lattice should be 1' square and the trellis should measure approximately 2.1m (7') long x 1.8m (6') high. A fan of 2.4m (10 x 8') canes should be attached to this which will act as a support and guide for the tree.

Plant the tree against the trellis at the base of the fan. Shortly after the tree produces its first leaves, cut back the central leader to about 45cm (18") above ground level. As the side branches develop they can be trained along the canes, attaching them with soft string. (Note that wire ties should not be used as they will damage the tree.) Peaches and nectarines can also be grown in the open as a bush in milder southern counties and modern apricots are being successfully grown in this way south of a line from the Wash across to North Wales.
