How cold and for how long has it got to freeze before peach trees will produce? Anyone know? Thanks in advance. It aint like I got a weather machine I was just wondering.

Vic, there's an orchard just north of the Mason/Dixon line in southern Pa. that grows peaches. I'm not sure if their trees are better suited to colder weather, but it gets pretty darn cold this far north. ...gfp

even tho they adore georgia weather, we had peaches in erie pa. and bartlett pears & apples we ate all we could && mowed so they'd rot.

some varieties require more chilling hours than others. what is your variety? a chilling hour is defined as any time below 45 deg. for example most of the peaches in se texas need about 200-400 chilling hours. contact your local county agriculture extension office for information.

Hopefully I did this link thing right. At least the Wife said it would work.

She lied again. You'll have to type it in. Sorry.
