Peach Trees - Intrepid

Prunus persica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 4-8


The perfect cobbler peach. The sweet, yellow-fleshed fruit from this tree is a great choice for baking as well as fresh-eating, canning, and freezing. An outstanding cold-climate peach, Intrepid blooms late so that it avoids most frosts. Additionally, it's flower buds will survive freezing temperatures even at full or half bloom. The tree is cold hardy to -20° F, and it is highly resistant to bacterial leaf spot. Growers should note the long chill hour requirement.  Intrepid was developed at the Sandhills Research Station in NC. It was crossed in 1987 and selected in 1990. Intrepid is red-skinned and is considered an improved variety of Reliance. It's texture of the flesh and flavor is improved and has an average fruit size in good conditions of about 2.5 inches. This peach is fully freestone and it makes a great canner. Ripens in July. Self-pollinating.

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
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.
Care Guide

Plant peach trees in deep, well-drained, sandy soil and in an area with plenty of sunlight. Planting should be done in the spring. Prune once a year, removing vertical branches to encourage lateral growth.
