Reliance Peach Tree

Prunus persica

A reliable canning peach, known for its hardiness. Plump, golden fruits are medium size with a red blush. Now considered primarily a canning variety. Ripens mid to late July. Zones 4-8. 'Reliance' begins bearing fruit at an earlier age than most Peach varieties and has a pretty display of pink flowers in spring. This selection produces freestone fruits, which means the pit-falls out easily when it's cut open. There is no need to plant an additional peach variety for pollination because this tree is self-fruitful.

The fruit is terrific picked straight from the tree and eaten fresh, sliced into a fruit salad, or baked in pies, tarts or crisps. Best used for large scale plantings. When planting, keep the base of the trunk exposed. Best in fertile, well-drained soil. Water regularly until established. Prune when dormant, in late autumn or late winter.  When planting, keep the base of the trunk exposed. Best in fertile, well-drained soil.
