Avalon Pride ®
Description: Avalon Pride is the worlds most resistant variety to 'peach leaf curl' to date, a big achievement in peach breeding! Produces large orange-red fruits that are red fleshed with deliciously, juicy mouth watering flavours. Bears stunning pink flowers in the spring. A fantastic eating peach that is very much suited to the UK climate and less susceptible to frost damage than other varieties.
History: Discovered in Washington State, near Seattle by Miss Pride as a seedling.
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.
