|'Belle of Georgia' is well adapted to the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and some areas of the Midwest. It produces large freestone peaches with creamy whitish skin, blushed red, and white flesh with good flavor. This midseason peach is vigorous and frost tolerant, a heavy bearer.
The peach is the most adaptable of all fruit trees for home gardens. When planting, they should be spaced to allow a spread of 20 to 25 feet. At 3 or 4 years of age they begin to bear large crops and reach peak productivity at 8 to 12 years.
Peaches need clear, hot weather during their growing season and require well-drained soil as well as a regular fertilizing program. They also require heavier pruning than any other fruit trees to maintain size and encourage new growth.
