The peach tree is admired as much for its beauty and fragrant blossoms as it is for its fruit. However, nothing tastes like a peach except a peach. It is sweet yet tart at the same time. This delightful balance of flavors is so popular it makes the peach tree one of the most widely grown orchard fruits in America, second only to apples. The flesh of a peach can be yellow or it can be white. Whether white or yellow, the flesh is always streaked with red at the pit or "stone." The two general classifications of peaches are either freestone or clingstone. Freestone means the pit separates readily from the fruit. However, clingstone does exactly as it says... the pit clings to the fruit. The peach tree has been cultivated for over 2,000 years, so there are hundreds of varieties. Willis Orchard Company makes it easy for you and offers only the finest peach selections for your home orchard.
(All of our selections are self-fertile and freestone, unless noted. Recommended planting distance is 15-20 ft. apart.)
