Peach Tree - Loring
Large Peach with Excellent Flavor
Peach - Loring, prunus persica 'Loring', is a very attractive, large, yellow peach with a hint of red blush. It has very firm, melting yellow flesh with excellent flavor. It is freestone and ripens in mid-season about midway between Redhaven and Elberta.
It has gained a good reputation as one of the better eating peaches. The peach tree is admired as much for its beauty and fragrant blossoms as it is for its fruit. The peach blossoms appear late winter and early spring along grey branches, before leaves emerge.
The peach is the most adaptable of all fruit trees for home gardens.It is an extremely vigorous tree and requires fertile, well drained soils. At 3 or 4 years of age it begins to bear large crops and reach peak productivity at 8 to 12 years.
Peaches need clear, hot weather during their growing season and require well-drained soil as well as a regular fertilizing program. This superb, taste test winner requires little or no thinning; excellent for the home orchard.
