Prunus persica 'Avalon Pride'

Discovered as a chance seedling in 1981 in Issaquah, WA by Margaret Proud. Avalon Pride is a highly-flavored, yellow-fleshed, semi-freestone peach great for preserves, pies, poaching or eating fresh.

This late-blooming yet early-ripening variety has some resistance to peach leaf curl. As a patented variety, royalties of 75 cents per tree go to support fruit research at the WSU Mt. Vernon location.

Ask a Question
  • We grow organic. Does this tree need to be sprayed?

    That depends entirely on your area and what you are spraying for. Avalon Pride has a mid-range disease resistance to leaf curl.

  • At 14’ high, how can this be a dwarf? Can it be maintained at 8 > 9’ and still be productive?

    Both Lovell and Citation, the two rootstocks we carry these trees on, are very similar in size. You can prune it to whatever height you want if you maintain it annually.

  • Do you need another peach tree or apricot tree with this one?

    Peaches need other peaches for cross pollination.

I love my tree and hope that you read this and know that my tree came unharmed and it has beautiful new growth and I will be purchasing more in the future!!

Great Tree

Tree arrived in good condition with a great root system. The tree has great disease resistance and I haven't had any disease problems with it. The first year it didn't grow too much but this year it's gotten huge. I saw a couple of flowers this spring as well but no fruits. We should get fruit next year though.

Arrived in great condition and definately alive.

I planted it and It is already starting to grow some leaves. Very healthy plant. Easy to see it is alive and no need for a scratch test.

Avalon Pride

I have been growing an Avalon Pride peach tree for 15 years The Avalon Pride is the most leaf curl and disease free peach I have grown and the peaches are very good tasting but I have been disappointed that this tree is not more productive.

my 2nd place peach

Not as vigorous as my Frost peach or as prolific for fruit but planted in 2011 I have a good idea how this stacks up to my frost planted in 2013. The fruit is a little more consistent texturally and the diameter of the fruit is a little larger than my frost, good quality! However- the avalon pride never grows more than 3 feet of new wood, usually less where my frost will grow up to 8 feet new wood every season. Ill get 3/4 of a grocery sack full of fruit off the avalon 3 full bags from the frost. The avalon with a light pruning gets 7 to 8 feet tall, the frost gets up to 14 and 16 feet tall and I prune about 40 percent of the tree off every year to bring it back down to about 10-12 feet. After thinking about it I wonder if various levels of curl resistance in varieties is making the difference on vigor as I never spray for curl
