Pollination guide for Bellegarde

Bellegarde is in flowering group 3. Bellegarde is partially self-fertile, but fruiting will be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other peach trees.

Important: advice about pollination

How to grow Bellegarde peach trees

The vast majority of peaches are self-fertile, but Bellegarde appears to need another (different) peach or nectarine variety nearby for best results.

Bellegarde has a reputation for good disease-resistance by peach standards but is still susceptible to peach-leaf curl, so be sure to protect the tree from infection in late winter / early spring - covering the tree with a fleece is a good method
