Florida Prince peaches in Central FL
« on: May 16, 2020, 09:06:11 PM »
Anyone else harvesting this and or any other low chill varieties?
Harvested two fruit this month. The first was lack luster- only the texture was like a peach. But the second one....my my. Delicious!!! Brix was surprisingly low at 15 (Tasted sweeter). Granted, my tree is still in its 3 gal pot but I'm thoroughly impressed and looking to get more.
The Earth laughs in flowers. And bear gifts through fruits.
No where to plant it ...but at least I got it. ;)
F*ck squirrels and deers

I have a 2 year old Florida Glo in the ground. It sort of had 2 waves of peaches
and I just finished the second batch. I probably got 70 peaches this year between the
two batches. The tree is only around 6'. Super good flavor. The only negative is the
peaches are small. White melting flesh.

We have a FL prince that is pretty big it just started getting ripe, theres hundreds of peaches on it.  In about 2 weeks it will be really putting out.

Have 1 here in 10a, had issues first few years with fungus spots.. But with some mulch and food it's been pretty good the past 2 years. lots of fruits but they are small... birds tend to like them a lot also! We bag them as much as possible.
