Peach Trees - Early Augustprince #5 Pot
Early Augustprince is a yellow, melting flesh type that is also a freestone. Its got that traditional acidic tang that we associate with a Southern peach. It was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture in Georgia and released in 2006. Early Augustprince is an attractive, very firm peach well adapted to the southeastern climate ripening with or just after ‘Cresthaven’ and a week before its brother Augustprince. Early Augustprince is a consistently large peach averaging from 3 – 3 1/4 inches in diameter. It has a very nice, uniform round shape, a nice yellow background color and red overcolor or blush. When you cut through the skin into the flesh, you can see that it has beautiful yellow flesh. Occasionally, at the pit there may be some red pigmentation and that’s not a problem. That red pigmentation is anthocyanin pigments and these are antioxidants which is a health benefit for you. This variety needs 800-850 chill hours to break bud and is recommended for USDA Zones 5-8.
USDA ZONES: Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8
