There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden. Learn more >

    Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.

Now even mild climate gardens can produce a tasty freestone Peach! Imagine the sweetness of Babcock combined with the intense flavor of Rio Oso or Elberta. This describes Santa Barbara, a large, superb tasting yellow peach with fine texture that melts in your mouth. Best for fresh eating. Self-fertile. Requires only 300 hours of winter chilling to produce a good crop, ripening in mid-summer. Deciduous.
