Flamin'Fury(R) PF- Lucky 13 Peach
Prunus persica 'Flamin'Fury(R) PF- Lucky 13'
Flamin'Fury® PF Lucky 13™ peach delivers both high red color and firm, quality freestone fruit. The peach is sweet and juicy with an excellent flavor, ripening about one week after Redhaven. The tree is spreading and very productive with good resistance to bacterial spot.
Grandpa was also good friends with the breeder of all the famous Flamin'Fury® peaches, who was another peach grower living near Grandpa and a cousin to the breeder of the Stellar® peaches. Paul Friday, thus "PF", continues to select peaches to this day, which Grandpa's son helps to evaluate every summer, looking for the best new peach varieties.
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.
