Peach Trees - Crimson LadyPrunus persica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 6-8
A new and distinct variety of peach tree, that are large in size, heavy in production, and early maturing, but is distinguished by having almost full red skin color at ripening time. This is a clingstone peach, instead of freestone in type, but has the sweetest flavor and a thin, almost smooth skin. The flesh is yellow, firm and very juicy but non-melting in texture. Crimson Lady peaches are very aromatic clingstone peaches and are better for snacking than cooking. It is an early-season variety, ripening late June to early July. It is a tip bearer and should be pruned accordingly. Prune the laterals short and you’ll prune off your crop. Those who prune correctly get good consistent crops. Cold tolerant but need only 600-700 chill hours to set fruit.
USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
