   Don't leave Sib-C and Bailey out of your trials.  Both grow here in zone
3 as does Pequot Peach(the hardiest).  They don't bear every year and get
beat up some winters but it is fun to grow items that others don't seem to
be able to.

I see 3 varieties listed as 'hardy'.

Reliance   -   Intrepid   -   Contender

All say 'zone 4'.
Descriptions vary, some claim bud & flower hardiness, too.
That's where my big orchard is; zone 4 central Maine.
Do any of you have first hand experience with peaches in southern zone 4 or
I intend to trial 2 trees of each, starting in spring '06.
Anyone been there ??
