Fiery blushing fuzzy skin, the Autumn Flame Peach Tree (Prunus persica 'Autumn Flame') is a firm and sweet Peach with a very mild acidity that's a perfect freestone yellow-fleshed fruit! Ideal for backyard orchards and easy for anyone to grow, Autumn Flame is a brilliant colored peach on a beautiful flowering tree!

After the gorgeous and fragrant pretty pink blooms emerge in spring, you'll watch with anticipation as the fuzzy gems slowly ripen and turn fire red over a yellow skin. Peach foliage is always a handsome bright green and the branching of Autumn Flame casts lush shade, also becoming the perfect backdrop to highlight the juicy fruit as they dangle in groups among the branches.

Autumn Flame Peach Trees are self-pollinating and won't require a second tree, however, to boost yield per tree, you can plant among other Peach trees to attract more pollinators and increase yield per tree. Ripening later in the growing season, you can pair Autumn Flame with an early producer to enjoy fruit all summer long! Hardy USDA growing zones 6-9, these are heat tolerant trees that grow to a mature height of 18-25' and a mature width of 15-20'

Planting and Application:

Featuring a rich, iconic peach flavor, Autumn Flame is firm in texture fresh off the tree in September or October, and softens as you allow it to ripen in the fruit basket or on the counter. Depending on how you want to use your Peaches in your various recipes and preserves, pies and pastries or frozen into various treats. They're of course wonderful fresh eating healthy treats. Prune smaller yet for easier harvesting and to readily include into even the smallest orchards and properties.

Autumn Flame is a beautiful ornamental flowering tree and great shade tree when not producing fruit, so if you have room for only one tree in your yard, choose one that does it all! Lush foliage for shade and privacy, hedgerows and shelterbelts that screen your back yard or hide an eyesore. Planting one in your front yard will not only boost curb appeal, allows for beautiful edible landscaping, and will have every neighbor drooling each summer.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Peach trees, like all fruit trees, do best in at least 6 hours of full sun a day and need very well-drained soil. Provide moderately moist soil and fertility in a location with good air circulation. Prune to remove dead or broken branches and to keep an open canopy.
