Regina Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Regina’)
Regina Peach Tree
The Regina Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Regina’) is a fantastic canning peach with incredible flavor and color! Unique among Peach, these are nearly fuzzless and the skin has a bright red coloration, the firm flesh is amazingly suited for processing and canning!
Starting the year off with showy pink blossoms every spring, this gorgeous fragrant display draws pollinators from near and far. Plus, you may just see a hummingbird stop by as well! Then, this early season peach develops large to medium-sized, perfectly round fruit that’s as beautiful and has exceptional flavor!
The vigorous growth and glossy green foliage are highly ornamental and perfect for dual-purpose landscaping or home orchard! This early-season variety will fill your pantry with delightful fruit before many of the others.
This is a fantastic Peach for preserving, canning, jams, and jellies and the firm flesh and freestone pit make preparation a snap! Easy to cut and slice, Regina Peaches retain their excellent flavor!
These trees are self-pollinating, so you’ll get a great crop from a single tree! However, for a much larger yield per tree, it’s recommended to plant with another Regina or Peach cultivar to boost your crops! No room for a second tree? Try this great high-density planting trick!
Try planting in groups or in a hedgerow that’s pruned to a smaller size for great privacy, screening, property definition and ease of harvest!
A fantastic ornamental flowering tree, with the bonus of healthy fruit, Regina adorns your landscape with a beautiful flower display and delicious gems in autumn.
The spreading growth habit provides amazing shade all summer! Set up a blanket and relax beneath the pink spring blossoms or enjoy the shade with a good book, either way, you’ll be able to keep a close eye on your developing harvest!
Peaches grow best in full sun, at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. These are best in USDA growing zones 6 through 9!
While not particular on type, fruit trees do best in enriched, highly organic, well-draining soil. A generous layer of mulch over your tree’s root system helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the roots from both heat and winter’s chill. 3-inches deep and spread out 2-3 feet past the trunk is recommended.
Water regularly throughout the growing season. While Peach trees are somewhat drought tolerant once established, it’s best to protect your investment with a regular watering schedule in times of need. Keep young trees especially well-watered and do not allow them to dry out.
Situate in an area that is protected from frost pockets and with good air circulation. Prune to keep an open canopy so that both sunlight and airflow reach the interior.
The Regina Peach Tree is a fantastic canning and preserving variety, and an incredible addition to the home landscape!
