Edible Highlight: Mid-Pride Peach
If you like peaches and live in Southern California, this is the tree for you! In San Diego, Mid-Pride Peaches generally ripen from about mid- June through mid- July. The tree produces large, sweet, yellow, free-stone (seed separates easily from flesh) fruit that is ideal for fresh eating. As with other peaches and nectarines, this tree has magnificent pink blossoms in spring, vibrant green foliage through summer, and then goes dormant, losing its leaves for the winter months. Mid-Pride peach trees only need about 250 chill hours making it a perfect candidate for most areas throughout San Diego even along the coastal strip.
