Reliance Peach

Reliance Peach (Prunus persica) is described as late blooming and very bud hardy. It is also a vigorous and fast-growing tree. Reliance Peach is a freestone peach with yellowish orange flesh and a red-orange skin when ripe.

Reliance Peach has great fall color. Leaves change from green

and cling to the tree for some time before falling to the ground. Leaf drop returns needed nutrients to the soil.


Trees That Please Nursery stocks Reliance Peach as it is a late-blooming variety, better able to beat our late spring frosts.
