Prunus persica 'Frost'

Frost is a lucky chance seedling discovered at the WSU Mount Vernon testing station, where it performed well in 10-year trials for disease resistance, especially to peach leaf curl. It has proved to be a remarkably durable tree, sailing through disease attacks and continuing to set fruit and ripen crops even in less-than perfect conditions and locations. A tasty, yellow-fleshed peach, it is semi-freestone making it good for fresh eating and kitchen-made treats. Frost also excels as an ornamental tree due to its full, almost double-blossomed, rosy flowers! Ripens mid-season.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Is this "Frost Peach" a dwarf 4' - 5'? Or is it the semi-dwarf that grows to 14'? The listing is confusing. Thank you

    This tree is shipped at a 4'-5' size and can be maintained at 14' tall.

  • Chilling Requirements?

    700+ hours

  • Will this tree take hard pruining to Espalier it???

    Peaches are tip bearing and thus do not espalier well.

  • Propagation... we are moving in a few months and i was wondering how can i propagate my tree to get a dwarf tree

    In the winter you can harvest some scion wood for progating the tree to a new rootstock in the spring. Lovell is probably best, but no peach rootstocks can be considered "dwarf" like apples can.

  • What is the difference in size (when grown out) between the dwarf and semi-dwarf of the Frost peach? Do both grow to 14 ft?

    Roughly yes, the semi-dwarf stock can go a couple feet higher, but both trees can be maintained at 14' tall.

  • What is ripening "mid-season"? mid-August? How do I well when they're ripe?

    The actual month will vary depending on location. Peaches are ready to pick when they lose their green tint and start to soften a very small amount. They will need further ripening indoors for 4-10 days at room temperature before they are ready to eat.

Arrived in Good Condition, BUT

I was surprised that there were no planting instructions of any kind.
I have planted bare root roses before, so I used that same method, nevertheless I would have felt more confident if there had been some directions about planting. Other than the tree itself, wrapped in plastic, there was NOTHING else in the box.

Frost Peaches

The trees have been planted and look wonderful. I already had 2 of these trees planted 5 years ago and they produce well, taste fantastic, and easy to pick because of the reasonable height.

Wonderful "Frost" peach in Zone 6B/7a, PA.

I planted "Frost" peach from Raintree Nursery in spring of 2021. In two years, it grew above 6 ft and flowered abundantly. "Hardired" nectarine is "Frost's" neighbor, therefore crosspollination likely increased the fruit set, which was so heavy that intense fining was necessary. Fruits started ripening by the beginning of August and were all-ready after 2 weeks (mid of August). Sun exposed side of peaches are covered with intense red blush, the pulp is yellow-orange and free-stone. Fruits are of excellent tase, more sweet than sour, juicy but not too much. Cases of split-pit are very rare (1-3 fruits from all harvest). I noticed some signs of leaf curl in spring (April or May), symptoms appearing for less than a month. Later disease disappears by itself ant the tree remains completely curl-free for the rest of the season.

Addition

This additional Frost Peace arrived well packaged with a good root system and no damage issues. It’s looking like a typical cold damp spring here in the PNW so time will tell!
