Prunus persica 'Victoria(R)'
- Hardiness Zone & More
Victoria(R) is one of the best late season peaches, ripening almost 10 days after Stellar(R) Autumnstar(R). The fruit has good color and is very firm with excellent flavor. It stores well. The tree is vigorous and productive. It has bacterial spot tolerance. Being such a late variety, Grandpa does not recommend it for short-season or cold climate areas.
Victoria(R) was bred at Rutgers University.
Almost all peaches are self-fertile and require no pollinators. They will set heavy crops on single trees, which need heavy and aggressive thinning early in the season for best fruit size. Maintain good vigor in peaches by pruning every year, and fertilizing moderately. Aim for 1-3 feet of new growth a year. Fertilize early in the season, so that growth is well hardened off before fall and winter cold weather.
