Suncrest is a late peach tree variety, a cross between Alamar and Gold Dust. It produces large, rounded fruit with only slightly flattened tops. The skin is yellow-green, remarkably flushed carmine red when mature. The flesh is firm, yellow, very sweet, juicy, and aromatic. Stone-free and self-fertile. Trees are moderately vigorous with spreading branches. Suncrest is better suited for warmer locations with long summers as it matures late - from early to mid September in C.E.

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. Suncrest is hardy enough to USDA zone 5b - down to abt. -27°C but needs a warm location and a long summer.
