The Frost Peach, prunus persica 'Frost', is a freestone with light red blush over greenish yellow.

The Frost Peach is delicious, excellent for eating fresh or canning. It has a showy pink spring bloom and is heavy bearing.

These peach blossoms appear late winter and early spring along grey branches, before leaves emerge.

It is an extremely vigorous tree and requires fertile, well drained soils. At 3 or 4 years of age it begins to bear large crops and reach peak productivity at 8 to 12 years.

Peaches need clear, hot weather during their growing season and require well-drained soil as well as a regular fertilizing program.

They also require heavier pruning than any other fruit trees to maintain size and encourage new growth. 'Frost' is very cold-hardy and could be grown to Zone 5.
