I would like to plant a couple of peach trees. Can someone recommend a variety to get for the Cedar Park area?

Thanks

I'm guessing you are going to want to find you a variety that requires about 500 chillin hours. Here in North Texas we get about 800 to 1000.
Chillin hours are measured in the actual number of hours below 45 degrees each winter. If you select a variety that has lots of chillin hours, you may never get any peaches. So do you some research to see what the average number of chillin hours you have there in Cedar Park. A good recommendation is found out what they are using in Fredericksburg and use that same variety.

My instinct would be “Harvester”. A fruit tree won’t acquire that name without a consistent history of producing fruit most years.

I cut both of mine down a couple of years ago. The squirrels and birds would get them before they got ripe.

I have had Rangers for 30 years and only one season with low production. That year they bloomed early and we had a late hard freeze. One year I sold 300 lbs to IGA in Roanoke. That was off 3 mature trees.

Check with the Schwegmann’s in Georgetown. They’re great folks and can give you some advice. About the same latitude. They used to have several varieties. They’ve gone to pecans now, but can still help.

Ask your Agrilife County Extension Agent. They will have the best recommendation for you area.

Also Williamson County Master Gardeners have a demonstration garden and will have first hand knowledge of varieties that work well in Cedar Park.
