The first Peach Leaf Curl resistant variety!
Perfect to grow in UK conditions
This unique peach was discovered as a chance seedling in Washington State, near Seattle. Peach 'Avalon Pride' bears pretty pink flowers followed by large, deliciously juicy fruits from early August.
Propagated onto 'Montclare' rootstock, which is very productive with medium vigour, and makes peach trees less susceptible to frost damage. Peach 'Avalon Pride' is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Height and spread: 2m (6') Rootstock: Montclare.
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water peach trees regularly during particularly dry periods.
Peaches may be fan trained against a wall or grown as a bush. When pruning peach trees it is important to avoid winter pruning as this leaves them prone to silver leaf disease.
To bush train: In the first spring after planting, select 3 or 4 well spaced branches on a clear trunk of at least 75cm (29"), and shorten them by two thirds. Remove the central stem to just above the highest of the selected branches. Remove any laterals below the selected branches.
In the following spring, select 3 or 4 sub laterals on each branch and shorten these by half to create a balanced, open framework. In future years peaches will require only occasional pruning to remove damaged, badly placed or diseased wood. This should be carried out during April. When fruits are walnut sized they should be thinned to one fruit per cluster, at a spacing of 22cm (9") apart.

Peach delight !!!!!!! 2015-04-30
I sent for an Avalon Pride Peach tree from you 2 or 3 years ago. After fussing various peach trees over the years I decided to not bother anymore until I read about this variety. I planted it in a patch of earth in the middle of the lawn. It is beautiful, an upright very strong growing tree . It seems to have one or two peach leaf curl affected leaves which I pick off.but nothing to the suffering of my former trees ! To my delight it has about a dozen tiny peaches on it this Spring..I can't wait to see how it progresses this year. I have given this tree no special treatment, except for watering when needed. Thank you T and M. Rosemary Smith

Peaches in Yorkshire! 2012-07-01
Fantastic peaches without the bother of having to spray them or try to shelter them from rain. Mine grows in a large pot near a sunny wall and has produced up to a dozen luscious peaches so far. Don't let it dry out or that will reduce the fruit quality and size.
