I apologize for the delayed response. We have been with 4-H youth at the Houston Livestock Show.Texas is divided into chilling zones. Crockett and most of Sutton & Schleicher counties are in the 900-hour chilling zone. Kimble is within the 800-hour zone.Here are a couple of useful links discussing chilling requirements: http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/fruit-nut/files/2010/10/peaches.pdfhttp://etweather.tamu.edu/chill/
