Question: What types of peaches are best for my part of Texas?
Answer: Again we’re going to refer you to your local county Extension office or the Texas A&M University Horticulture Department website for a reliable suggestion for your specific conditions. You need to match the chilling hours that your area receives with the needs of any variety you choose. Plant a couple of varieties for the very best pollination. If you plant several different types, choose so that you’ll have different varieties ripening all through the summer, not just over one or two weeks in June. Some of the best types for North Texas include Ranger, Sentinel, Denman, Harvester and Redskin. Some of those you might want to include in South Texas, where chilling hours are far fewer, include Early Amber, Rio Grande and Sam Houston.
