How do you select the best peach tree for your yard or orchard?
When choosing a peach tree, first consider your grow zone. Some varieties are more cold hardy and suitable for Northern gardens while others grow best in the South. Also take into account the space you have available. Gurney's offers fruit trees in standard size and the more manageable Reachables size. Next consider whether the peach variety is a clingstone or freestone. For canning, freestones are often preferred. You'll also want to take into account flavor and your personal flavor favorite.
