Through a breeding program that began in 1953, the University of Florida successfully developed numerous SELF POLLINATING, low chill peach varieties suitable for Florida’s warm climate.

What are chill hours? Typically chill hours are described as hours spent below 45F. While southern peaches are designed to NEVER go dormant, the chill hours give them time to catch their breath.
