Title: Peach and Nectarine Varieties in New York State
Authors: Brown, Susan
Lamb, Robert

Keywords: New York peach varieties

Issue Date: 1986
Publisher: New York State Agricultural Experiment Station
Series/Report no.: New York's Food and Life Sciences Bulletin
Abstract: There is a wide array of peach and nectarine varieties available on the market. Specific varietal characteristics should be considered before establishing a planting. Attributes such as production, hardiness, quality, disease resistance and market need to be evaluated for each variety on every site under consideration. The major limitations to successful peach production in New York state are problems related to winterhardiness and susceptibility to canker. Varietal selection and strict attention to site selection and to proper cultural conditions are prerequisites for success.
