Peaches love the sun
A place that is as sunny as possible, sheltered from the wind and with a loose and nutrient-rich substrate is ideal. A southerly orientation without shade, but with a boundary to protect against wind and drafts (e.g. house wall) should be the right choice. Peaches thrive best where wine also grows well. Depending on the variety, cultivation is also possible in rougher regions.
White fleshed varieties are less sensitive
If you do not live in a wine-growing region, we recommend growing more robust varieties. Most white-fleshed peaches are less sensitive to less optimal locations and also feel at home in northern climes. You should also choose a frost-resistant peach, the flowers of which do not freeze immediately when night frosts set in. In such a case, the variety “Flamingo” is a good choice.
Tips & Tricks
Keep an eye out for new varieties that have been specifically bred for greater frost tolerance and resistance to frizziness.
