How to grow peaches in your sub-tropical Florida Garden!
Prunus persica 'Florida Prince'
It has taken 45 years of research and very hard work, but finally Florida scientists have come up with peach trees that will not only grow, but produce fruit in Florida as far south as Miami!
Developed by University of Florida researchers with cooperation from Florida growers, the Florida Prince Peach was specifically created to prosper in the warmer climates of Florida. The result is a delicious and juicy early-season peach.
Here to the left you see a peach tree growing in the Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The great thing about the Florida Prince peach is that it needs only 150 "chill hours" to produce fruit, that is 150 hours of temperatures below 45 degrees fahrenheit.
