White Lady Peach

Prunus persica 'White Lady'

White Lady has performed well in the east and may have sufficient hardiness for more northern areas.  Worthy of trial if you are looking for an excellent quality white-fleshed peach that ripens in early-mid season ahead of Blushingstar(R).  The fruit is very firm, sweet, freestone and stores well.  One of the best!

Prunus persica 'White Lady'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

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.

White Lady has performed well in the east, even though bred in California.  It requires about 700-950 chilling hours making it suitable for most northern areas.
