Peach Trees - Caroking #5 Pot
The Caroking peach is a more traditional, Southern peach, developed at Clemson University. The fruit has the typical, tangy, sweet, juicy, fabulous flavor, that calls to mind the long days of summer. Caroking peach is a good size fruit averaging from 2 ¾ to 3 inches in diameter and is an early variety that ripens in July or 26 days before Elberta. It has a very nice uniform, round shape and an excellent red overcolor (or blush). When you cut through the skin into the flesh you can see that it has yellow flesh. It is a melting flesh type and it is also freestone. It’s very well suited certainly for fresh eating, but also for making into ice cream, cobbler, smoothies, … pretty much anything you want! Its’ got that typical tanginess that comes from peaches with normal acidity that we associate with a Southern peach. Caroking peach is suitable for USDA Zones 5-8 and needs over 850 chill hours.
USDA ZONES: Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8
