Hales Early Peach

Description: Hales Early is a hardy early variety for our UK climate. Crops very heavily producing fruit that's skin is crimson streaked. Flesh is pale yellow, tender, melting and delicious. The flesh clears freely from the stone, freestone. Pretty pink flowers during early spring.

History: First introduced in the USA.

Peach Growing Tips: Suited to well-drained and moderately fertile soils in a full sun position. Fan training on a sheltered wall (except north facing) is recommended to avoid leaf curl. Picking times relate to growing under glass, therefore if planting outside at least two weeks need to be added. Early flowering outside makes these trees prone to frost damage. Fruit is best picked when still firm to final ripening indoors.
