Red Baron Peach

As soon as we moved to Texas, that first spring I started to notice a tree that had beautiful rich dark pink blooms.  After some investigating, we finally found that it was a Red Baron peach.  Of course, I needed one. This is the 2nd year that it has been planted.  I am just happy that it is still alive.  We don't have the best ground conditions and this year has been a struggle.  The temperature will be hot one day and near freezing the next.  But on one sunny day, I was able to snap these pictures of some of the blooms.  It is not covered with blooms, but as it gets older, I think it will have more.  And then I will be able to look out my kitchen window and see a beautiful tree.  For now, I  need to use the binoculars. 

If you want to put one in your orchard, try to find one that has a bloom open--that way you will know what color it will be.

  2. What beautiful flowers...and color. :)

  3. These are so pretty! I saw the tag and had to look at it. Mine are almost ready to bloom, they opened up a little more today. I can't wait! We hope to plant it as soon as it warms up after this cold spell. Love you!
