Why Belle of Georgia Peach Trees?
Add a classic, time-tested Peach Tree to your garden with the Belle of Georgia Peach. The definition of the Georgia Peach, this old-time favorite is beloved for its large, flavorful fruit. And it comes with visual appeal, too - the Belle of Georgia grows with a neat, rounded crown and dark green leaves that turn deep yellow in fall.
This beautiful Belle blooms in spring with showy, fragrant pink flowers. Blooms are followed in summer by large, creamy-white peaches with a brilliant red cheek, ready for a late-August harvest.
True to its name, the Belle of Georgia's freestone fruit is sweet and juicy, ideal for baking, canning, and eating. This fast-growing Peach Tree is self-pollinating, so you don’t need a second tree to deliver delicious fruit (although planting additional trees will increase your yield). The Belle requires 800 chill hours.
And the best part? This Belle of Georgia is grown organically, so you can get fresh peaches at home, without relying on harsh chemicals. It's also resistant to leaf spot, brown rot and other common peach issues.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Belle of Georgia Peach Tree in a full sun area (receiving at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day). The Belle of Georgia prefers well-draining, sandy or loamy soil. Be sure to protect your tree from heavy winds by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree and cover the roots with soil, watering occasionally as you go along to remove any air pockets that may have formed. Gently pat the soil down until the roots are completely covered. Finally, water the planting site and mulch to help retain moisture in the soil.
2. Watering: Keep the soil around your Belle of Georgia moist. It's best to water once a week by leaving a hose at a slow drip at the base of the tree for a couple of hours. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again. During times of extreme heat, your tree may need additional water.
Tip: Yellowing of the leaves is a sign of overwatering, while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of underwatering.
3. Fertilization: After your tree has been in the ground for 6 weeks, apply 1 lb. of a balanced fertilizer formula such as 12-12-12. In addition, apply ¾ lb. of fertilizer in the spring before new growth. Repeat this in the summer and fall as well.
4. Pruning: The Belle of Georgia will need to be pruned the first two years in order to maintain an open center shape and encourage fruit production. Prune your tree in late winter or early spring using pruning shears and making your cuts at a 45-degree angle.
Trim away any broken/dead branches and any that are criss-crossing by making your cut right below the dead wood.
5. Pollination: The Belle of Georgia is a self-pollinating peach, so you'll get fruit with just one tree. Plant more trees to increase your fruit yield.
Tip: Once your tree begins to fruit, thin your peaches out. Thinning out your peaches will help to increase your overall production. Peaches on the top and outside of the tree will likely be ready to pick first. They will be fully ripe when there is no green left on the skin and they come off with a slight twist.
