Good luck, my friend! Peaches I do easy. Bananas are bit more challenging here. We had somewhere around 15-20 days with frost this past winter and got plenty of chill hours. I think we're past the threat of chill now, though we had frost on April 5, 2009.

Really? 75 - 100 hours, That is the lowest chill hours I have ever heard of. Pretty amazing I hope it taste good! I never knew how much I liked peaches till I picked some fresh ones. I am sure you will enjoy this plant, and given your record I expect it to be 5x the size of mine by years end.

You'll love fresh picked peaches. I had a Hale Hardy back at the old family house way back in the 70's. There is no comparison in flavor to store bought. Fresh picked is superior. Unfortunately the blizzard of 77 killed the tree. Just be very careful of peach tree boorer. They can devistate a tree in a short period of time.

The peach is looking good, but I think I like the pineapples more.
