Liberty semi-dwarf Apple

 -Full Sun–  Semi-Dwarf on M-111, Space 15′-20′ apart, Needs Pollinator

Mid September.   Touted as the most disease-resistant of the PRI apples, this tree has performed remarkably well for us, producing flawless shiny fruit with minimum of care.   Seems to resist insect damage as well as fungal diseases.  We recommend Liberty the most of all our apples.   Fruit is deep purple-red on the sun side and bright green on the shade side, having a flavor like a more sprightly and crisp McIntosh.   Need to thin this variety heavily or fruit size can be small.   A decent keeper in storage.

Mollie’s Delicious Dwarf Apple

 -Full Sun–  Dwarf on Bud 9, space 6′-10′ apart (stake), needs pollinator

Late August.   A more southerly adapted apple, doing best in zones 5-8.   Very large, crisp and sweet.   Pretty red blush and striping over a yellow background.   Known to have resistance to some diseases so has potential for organic growers.

Harrow Diamond Peach

 -Full Sun–  Full size on Lovell, space 15′-20′ apart, self-fertile

Early-season.  Beautiful red striping over yellow background, resembles a flame.  Makes very sizable fruit if properly thinned.   Partially freestone, especially when fully ripe.  This variety is more resistant to bacterial spot and brown rot than other peaches.   A more blossom-hardy variety developed at the Harrow Research Station, so you’ll get crops in years that Red Haven will fail.   One more good thing about this peach is its 2” wide pink blossoms in the spring.  Breathtaking!

I assumed that the soft, sugary, and fragile nature of peaches would make them a magnet for pests and diseases here in southern IN.   However, with planting resistant varieties and heavy pruning to keep an open tree, we have been successfully producing delicious ripe peaches with no sprays.   In 2010 I fulfilled my dream to literally gorge on tree-ripe organic peaches (wasn’t as good an idea 6 hours later!).   Peaches are quick growers and often bear fruit earlier in life (2-3 years) than most fruit trees.   They are also shorter lived—expect 15-25 years from a peach tree.   We have not noticed any Peach Leaf Curl disease on any of our peaches.   All on ‘Lovell’ seedling rootstock which makes a standard sized (14-16’) longer-lived tree. Space peaches 15-20’ apart.  An idea I have heard to dwarf peach trees is to plant 3-4 of them 4′ apart in a square or triangle and then prune them carefully around each other.  Supposedly the root competition acts to dwarf the trees, keeping them more easily managed at 8-12′.

Raritan Rose Peach

 -Full Sun–  Full size on Lovell, space 15′-20′ apart, self-fertile

Mid-season.   Beautiful, white-fleshed freestone peach that hangs well on the tree compared to Belle of Georgia.  Excellent flavor–many people love white peaches, but I find many of them lacking in flavor compared to yellow peaches.  This is an exception–much more peachy flavor with an extra burst of sweetness!  Gorgeous pink blush on its cheeks.

 -Full Sun–  Full size on Lovell, space 15′-20′ apart, self-fertile
