#ProPlantTips For Care

Requiring full sun for the most fruit and healthiest tree, provide Golden Jubliee at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Hardy in USDA growing zones 5 through 8, the later bloom time means not losing your flowers to a late frost.

This tree is adaptable to a variety of soil conditions, including cold climates. Although this is a self-pollinating peach, we do recommend growing two of them or adding another peach. You'll get larger crops with partner plants!

Choose a site with slightly acidic soil, with a sandy-loam medium. Be sure to provide fertile, rich soil that is well-drained. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

It is easy to maintain this tree much smaller if needed, so any sized yard can now accommodate a Peach tree! Prune to keep an open canopy for sunlight and airflow to reach the interior of the tree. Read more in our Garden Blog on Peach Tree Care!

Water consistently, especially when in pots or containers, and maintain an average, consistent moisture throughout the growing season. Fruiting trees, shrubs and plants all benefit from Nature Hills Root Booster while planting, for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.

They are not affected by the bad weather that can disrupt the fruit-set of other varieties. Even in the years of good weather, the Golden Jubilee's heavy fruit set is complemented by its self-thinning properties, so fruit size is always good with very little extra effort.

This tree's lineage originated in New Jersey, the oldest peach-growing region of the United States. Peaches have been grown commercially in New Jersey for over three centuries, starting in the 1600s. In 1926, the Golden Jubilee Peach was developed.

This new variety was derived from an Elberta seedling crossed with a selection called Greensboro. The peach was awarded the name Golden Jubilee in honor of the 50th anniversary of the New Jersey State Home Horticultural Society.

For a tried-and-true Peach tree variety suitable for cold Northern orchards, you won’t go wrong with the Golden Jubilee Peach Tree! Order at before they’re gone!

Peach Tree Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for Golden Jubilee Peach Trees to bear fruit?

Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems that are already three to four years old, so you’ll enjoy fruit sooner than you would with younger trees! Expect a young peach tree to begin fruiting by the 3rd year after you plant it.

How Fast Do Golden Jubilee Peach Trees Grow?

Be sure to plant your peach in a sunny and well-drained location. Once your Golden Jubilee (Prunus persica 'Golden Jubilee') has been established (after the first year), it can typically add 12-18 inches of new growth in a growing season. If your plants are adding less than that in a season, it may be worth your while to check the fertility level.

Where do Golden Jubilee Peach Trees Grow Best?

Peach trees grow best in well-drained, fertile soil in at least 6 hours of full sun per day or more.

Do You Need 2 Peach Trees to Produce Fruit?

All peach trees are self-fertile, however planting more than one peach tree that blooms at about the same time, boosts yields on both trees and extends your harvest time!

Harvest Times for Golden Jubilee Peach Trees

Golden Jubilees are typically ready to harvest in July. Keep in mind exact harvest times are subject to change depending on the hardiness zones they’re being grown in.

Early-Season? Mid-Season? Late-Season? The terminology can be confusing for new peach tree growers. Weather, climate and your tree determine when it’s ripe.

When Should Golden Jubilee Peach Tree be Planted?

Bareroot peach trees can be planted in spring when they are available in your area. Container-grown peach trees can be very successfully transplanted all throughout the growing season. Check for first and last frost dates for your area with your local County Extension Office.

  • Plant bareroot peach trees in the early spring.
  • Plant container-grown trees anytime the ground is not frozen by digging a hole as deep as the soil line and twice as wide.

Golden Jubilee Peach Perfect Choice for Backyard Growers

The Golden Jubilee Peach traces its roots to the oldest peach growing region in the United States, which is New Jersey. Peaches have been grown commercially in New Jersey since the 1600's. Atlases published in Scotland in 1864 called New Jersey "The Garden of the World" and this may have contributed to the nickname "the Garden State".

The New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Rutgers University, in North Brunswick, New Jersey was established in the 1880's. Their mandate was to breed plants to suit the New Jersey grower and home owner. The New Jersey Peach industry, one of the largest in the nation, had peaked in the late 1800's and challenged by disease, pests, and emerging competition, went into decline in the early 1900's.

The Peach breeding program at the Rutgers Vineland location began in 1907 with a directive to breed more competitive peach varieties for the New Jersey growers. Freestone was becoming high in demand, and 9 varieties were introduced between 1921 and 1925.

Then, in 1926, the Golden Jubilee Peach, a seedling of the Elberta crossed with a selection called Greensboro, was released. It is said to have outstanding flavor and good disease resistance. The selection is given the name Golden Jubilee to honor the 50th anniversary of the New Jersey State Home Horticultural Society.

The variety finds some commercial success but because of its uneven ripening and lack of red in the skin, it never really becomes of great interest in the commercial market. However, the home gardener who becomes introduced to the wonderful flavor and soft melting flesh is quick to raise demand.

The qualities that are special to the home gardener don't stop with just flavor. The Golden Jubilee sets a heavy crop every year. It is not bothered by the bad weather that can interfere with other variety's fruit-set from year to year. Even in the years of good weather, the Golden Jubilee's heavy set would be complemented by its self-thinning, so fruit size is always good with little extra effort.

Today, Golden Jubilee is still considered one of the best choices for the cold climate backyard peach grower. Good in zones 5 to 9, Golden Jubilee Peach remains one of the most dependable, finest flavored, mid-season varieties sold to the home gardener today.
