The best peach I ever ate, which has very low chill hours (400 hours
under 45 degrees) is 'Dixieland.' You can buy one in any of the
better garden centers. It's a little late now for that, but you can
still check around. Call The Natural Gardener. That's where I bought
mine several years ago. It was a whip. Four years later it is 20
feet tall and wide, upside down umbrella pruned and after proper chill
hours it produced (2 years ago) 15 bushels. Last year I barely got a
peach, but that was because we didn't have but one very light frost
and no real cold weather for sustained period of time.

I have a couple of La Feliciana Peach trees. They seem to do well and give
a lot of wonderful fruit every year. The fruit is pale yellowish, and not
orange/red like most peaches, but the flavor is incredible!

I just planted a Methley Plum and La feliciana peach, but it's too
soon to offer personal results. try this site:
