The Sam Houston Peach Tree was fittingly developed in the 'Lone Star' state by Texas A&M. The tree requires only 500 chill hours to fruit. It the stunning pink flowers of this variety does not catch your attention, their fragrance surely will. The sweet smell of spring gives way to the sweet, yellow flesh of this peach come late June. The Sam Houston Peach Tree is large, self-fertile and freestone with a small pit. All of these attributes are a wonderful reason to add peach trees to your backyard or orchard.
