The Frost Peach Tree was discovered in Washington State, where it stood out for its resistance to peach leaf curl, a destructive fungal disease that is particularly troublesome in that part of the country. It was trialed for many years at the University of Washington and consistently showed a natural resistance to the disease. Frost has also proven itself to be a good choice for those living in cool-summer climates like the Pacific Northwest because it doesn’t need a lot of heat in order for its fruits to ripen. It’s a vigorous grower, a heavy bearer, and it’s very cold hardy, too.
Your Frost Peach Tree will give you and your family lots of sweet snacking that you can feel good about. Juicy peaches are low in calories and are a delicious source of ten different vitamins, including vitamins A, C, and E, as well as a wealth of minerals, such as potassium. They also provide valuable antioxidants and fiber.
How to Grow
It takes a little know-how to grow fruit trees well—that’s why our expert growers are standing by at email@example.com to answer any questions you might have. There are some diseases and pests that find peaches as tasty as we do, so it’s important to monitor your Frost Peach Tree carefully for problems, so they can be dealt with before they get out of control. Plant your tree in the sunniest part of your yard in a site with good soil that drains well, as Peach Trees don’t tolerate soggy soil. Irrigating with the Elements™ Watering System will ensure that the right amount of water gets to the developing tree’s roots. Mulching around the tree with a layer of bark or wood chips is also important and will help to keep the root zone cool and moist.
