Peaches have been called the queen of fruits, and with good reason. We recall biting into nearly softball-sized tree-ripened Jersey peaches that oozed sweetness and flavor. Supermarket peaches rarely equal that memory of perfection.
You can grow your own peaches in Florida, and though they’re not large, they’re every bit as sweet, juicy and flavorful as that memory of peach perfection. It hasn’t always been possible. Forty-five years of research and breeding by the University of Florida has produced peach cultivars ideal for our climate. The U of F cultivars are patented and money generated from the sale of trees goes into the Florida stone fruit breeding program.
