Amsden is an old American peach tree variety from Missouri renowned for high resistance to leaf curl. It is an early variety producing peaches from late July (C.E.) i.e. 15-20 days before Redhaven. They are rounded and weigh about 100g. Its typical feature that helps you tell the variety is the greenish, red flushed skin. The flesh is white, juicy, medium to very sweet and aromatic, attached to the stone. Yields are average and fruit can be picked up over a longer period. Thanks to leaf curl resistance Amsden is ideal for ecological (organic) farming as no fungicide is needed to protect the tree. Trees are vigorous, densely branched, and suitable also for slightly colder locations. Self-fertile.

We suggest planting peach trees in free space so it can feel cold, spring breeze which will delay flowering and thus prevent the flowers from frost damage. It likes slightly alkaline soil, moist but well drained. Do not transplant bare-root trees in autumn, only in spring. Pruning is possible in early spring after flowering or in mid-late August after harvesting the fruit – reduce long branches to 30-50% of their size and remove weak ones. The best yield however is from an unpruned tree which grows naturally. Amsden is suitable for marginal regions of peach cultivation, too, being hardy to about -29°C (USDA zone 5b).
