Avalon Pride is an early-season yellow-fleshed peach with a good flavour. It is one of the most resistant varieties to peach-leaf curl, a fungal infection which is endemic in the UK.

Pick the fruits when they are still firm and allow to ripen indoors.

Like many peaches Avalon Pride has very attractive pink blossom.

How to grow

Avalon Pride is well suited to the UK climate, and has some tolerance of early frosts. For best results it should be planted in a sheltered position in full sun.

Although sometimes promoted as resistant to peach-leaf curl, it is by no means disease-proof, just a bit less susceptible than other varieties. It should therefore be protected from infection in late winter / early spring - covering the tree with a fleece is a good method.

History

Avalon Pride was discovered as a chance seedling growing near Seattle, USA in the 1990s. This is one of the few areas of the USA where the local climate is similar to the cool temperate maritime climate of the UK.
