The elegant pink clusters of blossoms arrive in early spring to provide a reprieve from the winter and are tolerant of temperature changes, so you won't have to worry about a frost nipping them off before they can develop their juicy summer gems! It's worth planting this beauty for the spring floral show alone!
The firm, almost crisp flesh that is full-flavored and sublime! In fact, it was one of the top-scoring varieties at a blind fruit tasting event! The red-skinned peaches, with cream flesh, are medium to large, very firm, and freestone. By late July you'll be ready to harvest these delectable delights.
From spring until fall, it's a delight to behold. With four seasons of interest, there is always something to look forward to! Handsome foliage in bright green fills out this strong branched tree, creating a fantastic shade tree for any location in your landscape. Long, curved leaves stay lovely throughout the entire growing season! Aside from its superior fruit, White Lady produces stunningly beautiful pink flowers making it a spring ornamental tree along with its fruit-bearing capabilities!
Eat them fresh off the tree or save some for later. Gold ribbon pies and pastries, whiz up in smoothies, churn some into homemade ice cream, or make a creamy dessert sauce from the white flesh. Dry some for trail mix, and of course, sliced fresh over your morning granola!
Keep Peach Trees happy by planting them in moderately watered, mulched and enriched well-drained locations with good air circulation. They need the full sun to perform best. Prune when dormant or summer prune to control size.

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.
Be sure to plant your peach in a sunny and well-drained location. Once your White Lady (Prunus persica 'White Lady') 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.
Peach trees grow best in well-drained, fertile soil in at least 6 hours of full sun per day or more.
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!
White Ladys are typically ready to harvest in July to August. 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.
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.

White Lady Peach is one of the early introductions by the world acclaimed Floyd Zaiger. Zaiger is best known for his work with interspecific hybrids, specifically the Plum Apricot crosses called Pluot's and Aprium's. His work has been heavily influenced by Luther Burbank.
Zaiger began hybridizing plants by crossing varieties of Azaleas and Rhododendrons in the early 1950's. At this time, he was in search of heat tolerant selections that would do well in the Central Valley of California.
Zaiger's work came to the attention of Fred Anderson, a well know fruit breeder of the time, often referred to as the father of the Nectarine. Anderson actually started his career as an assistant to the world renown plant breeder Luther Burbank, so there was another connection.
Anderson liked the work that Floyd was doing and offered him a job as a plant breeder. This began his life-long fascination with fruit hybridization.
The White Lady is an early successful Zaiger hybridizations and is known as a 'Sub Acid' fruit. At its introduction in 1985, White Lady was noted for its great size, flavor and red blush skin color. It's most memorable feature was the lack of acid. White Lady Peach is a mild flavored fruit that was very sweet when still eaten firm. 'Sub Acid' would remain a focus of Zaigers hybridizations.
White Lady Peach resulted from the combination of several different well-known varieties of fruit. A first-generation seedling, it came one tree that was a cross of O'Henry and Giant Babcock pollinated by another tree that was a cross of May Grande Nectarine and Sam Houston Peach.
It has proved to be widely adaptable and is planted it all peach growing regions throughout the United States today. You'll love the White Lady Peach!
