#ProPlantTips For Care

Hardy in USDA growing zones 5-9, these are quite a cold-hardy fruit tree! Best in full sun for optimal growth and harvest, plant your White Lady in at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.

Widely adaptable to all types of soil conditions, the best type is fertile, well-drained soil. Adding organic material, compost, peat moss and manure when planting will set the stage for a healthy tree for years to come!

Requiring moderate, yet consistent moisture, while drought-resistant once established, it’s crucial to protect your investment by watering the root ball regularly. Water young trees very well until they are established, and after, provide supplemental watering during fruiting, during summers and in times of drought.

Peach trees cannot tolerate soggy soil conditions, so if drainage is a concern, consider elevating your tree, plant in a berm or raised bed. Add 18 - 24 inches of soil above the native soil line and plant your tree directly in that mound.

A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.

A vigorous grower, reaching 15-25 feet tall and similar width, White Lady is also precocious, fruiting at an early age. Nature Hills ships mature trees that are already 3-4 years old, so you’ll never have to wait long before picking your first harvest of juicy, delectable fruit!

Prune in summer to control the size, remove suckers and water growth, but prune in winter to open the canopy to sunlight and air circulation, and to remove damaged, dead or diseased branching. Head over to our Garden Blog for more tips and tricks for caring for your Peach tree!

Beautiful, Sweet, Highly Adaptable Improved Peach

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!
