Bellegarde is a traditional late-season yellow-fleshed peach from France, with dark red skin. In English conditions it usually ripens towards the end of September.
Cropping is generally good.
This is a freestone peach - the stone falls cleanly from the flesh.
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
