Peach Trees

So I have a good open direct sun light front yard. I was thinking about putting in a catalpa tree, but the mosquito spraying in town has dessimated my friends worm production in recent years.

I've been reading this research paper, and I think I want to put a couple of peach trees instead.

1) Is it worth it to fool with?

2) Which variety would you recommend? (NWLA)

3) Any other words of wisdom?

I know they are a big deal in Ruston, I just don't know which type is best.

re: Peach Trees
put it in your back yard.

You dont need a bunch of fruit pickers in your front yard.

I had thought about that, but the front yard had a tree removed and has better light.

I'm thinking off to the side, not neccessarily a center piece of the yard.

Start slaying the squirrels now, plant in the winter.

Plant a variety that will give you a larger peach. Mine are too small. I just ate a summer globe that was the size of a softball.

Is this a good N. LA variety?

re: Peach Trees

I planted one last year- LaFeliciana. Can't offer any more than that. I'm not too knowledgeable on peaches and still awaiting my first ones from the yard.

re: Peach Trees
Thanks, I got most of that from the paper, any suggestions on one variety over another?

Good advice. Every year mine starts looking good, then I come home from work one day and every peach on the tree has disappeared.

re: Peach Trees
Summer Globe probably would produce in N. LA. I bought it in a mixed bag - harvesters, red globe and one Summer Globe.

re: Peach Trees
Not sure if you like them, but my favorite tree is the Persimmon. Fuyu variety.

I don't have much knowledge on peaches though.
