I need the experts!
Last year I had to take down all of my peach trees on the advise of Jellyman. They were too old (22 years) and didn't produce a single fruit even though they flowered like crazy.
So, this year I am looking to put in some new ones. I'm looking at Red Haven, PF Flamin Fury 17, Early Star, Contender, and Sentry from Adams County Nursery.
I'm in Northern Virginia and would like trees that produce their fruit before the end of August. Also, I only have room for three trees and need varieties that are pretty tough as summers here can be quite miserable. Last year we had 65 days over 90 degrees.
If there are other varieties that would be better, please let me know as I'm starting from scratch here - again.
Please let me know which of these varieties would be the best for my location.
Thanks for any help.
