Plant Characteristics

Reliance Peach Tree

Reliance is considered the hardiest variety of peach trees. Flush with soft pink spring blossoms, this medium to large freestone peach ripens in mid-summerDark green foliage follows blossom time, lasting through the season and turning yellow in fall. Fruit has yellow skin with a red blush and bright yellow flesh which is soft, sweet, and juicy. So tasty, fresh from the tree! Excellent in cooking, baking, canning, and freezing. This tree is self-pollinating, however it will set a heavier crop if a different peach variety is growing nearby. Use as an accent in your landscape or plant an orchard! Reliance is not particular about pH or soil type. Well suited and tolerant of air pollution and urban settings. Does not tolerate standing water. Avoid planting peach trees in the same soil where other stone fruits have been grown recently. Best pruned in late winter or early spring, following the threat of extreme cold. Halford rootstock.

Product Questions

Is the Reliance Peach resistant to peach leaf curl?
Question by: Nityant on Feb 7, 2022, 3:10 PM
It may have some resistance to peach leaf curl. Leaf curl can largely be prevented by good sanitation practices in the fall - picking up leaf debris and not letting it overwinter, and pruning properly to allow for good air circulation. Most fruit trees will need some sort of preventative measures to have good fruit production.

When should I expect peaches? I ordered a 2-3' whip, will I get peaches my first year? Some directions tell you to pinch off first year fruit so it will root better, should I do that?

You could expect your tree to start fruiting within 3-5 years. Some people remove fruit, but it is not necessary for the health of the trees.
