At only 250 chill hours,  the  'Red Baron' peach can be grown as far south as north Tampa and north Orlando, where the zone 9 temps range at 210-310 most winters. 

It is also thriving well in upper zone 8, as far north as Athens Georgia!   That's a rather wide growing range for the average low chill peach -- most don't have that much latitude in temperature tolerance.

Red Baron is a richly flavored yellow peach with strong red exterior blushing. It is highly rated in taste tests, and a long-time favorite in Southern California and Texas. Our trees are grafted on Nemaguard especially for Florida home orchards.

The spectacular double, scarlet-red blossoms can last as long as three weeks in the late spring, with fruit ripening from mid-July to early August. On Nemaguard root stock, trees grow about 12-15' tall and nearly as wide.
