Loring Peach Tree
Fruit that melts in your mouth! The delicious, sunset-hued fuzzy gems of Loring Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Loring’) are as delightful to look at as they are to smell and taste! With a strong, true peach flavor and texture, these juicy delights are perfect for warm climate fruit tree growers!
Blooming in spring after the threat of a late frost, you’ll be delighted by frilly clusters of gorgeous pink blooms! Pollinators and early arriving hummingbirds will love the feast.
Long, wavy green leaves fill out your tree, making it a pleasing ornamental tree that lends dappled shade beneath its sturdy limbs.
It won’t take long before you’re treated to the sight of your tiny peaches racing toward harvest. As mid-July approaches, you’ll see your tiny fruit mature into large, yellow peaches, complete with an enchanting, scarlet blush! Like a mini sunset dangling from the branches, the mix of yellows, golds, scarlet reds, orange and rosy tones are incredible!
Biting into your first peach, fresh off your own tree, still warmed by the sun will quickly reveal why Loring is a taste test winner! The yellow flesh is juicy yet firm, low in acid and oh-so-sweet! The peaches are wonderful right off the tree or great for canning and freezing.
Fantastic for dessert sauces, jams, jellies and churning into ice cream, your breakfast oatmeal or smoothie will become your newest summer treat!
Ornamental trees are an extravagant addition to any landscape, and Loring fits into most of them easily. Prune smaller yet for those tight spots, any sunny location will be perfect for this tree!
The glorious spring display is the perfect destination spot for a blanket where you can watch the petals flutter down around you and bees buzz from blossom to blossom! Or bask beneath the summer shade and watch your harvest ripen!
Ditch that boring flowering tree with a dual-purpose ornamental that provides you and your friends with delectable fruit as well! Edible landscaping is all the rage and you can enjoy multi-purpose plants instead!
Highlight as a focal point and specimen plant in your front yard, raising it onto a berm or raised bed to further stand it out for the entire neighborhood to see! Or add to a row of trees along the side of your property, where several of these beauties or a mixed fruit tree hedge, adds luscious privacy and screening you’ll be able to enjoy year-round!
Add as an anchor to your garden beds or as a shade tree over your seating areas or patio. Plus, these are a fantastic addition to a warm climate home orchard!
The Loring Peach is a vigorous grower that will adjust to a variety of soils and tolerates heat and humidity. Hardy in USDA hardiness zones 5 through 8 and soaks up the full sun! Fruit trees require at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day for the best crop, and best health of your tree.
For best results, provide a location with rich, organic well-drained soil, enriched with manure and compost. Top off with a good layer of mulch to hold in more moisture consistency and to also insulate the roots from both heat and cold.
For best results, fertilize your tree regularly with Dr. Earth Fruit Tree Fertilizer or a good organic, slow-release fertilizer. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.
It’s generally an easy tree to care for, requiring little or no pruning, trimming or thinning, it is adaptable to shaping if you wish to keep it smaller. Read our Garden Blog for more information on pruning your fruit tree and more tips and tricks on Peach tree care
