chilling hours in dc area
Hello, What is the number of chilling hours in the DC area. I am interested in planting a peach tree called "Frost peach" which requires 700 chill hours and would like to know if it will get them! It is recommended for USDA zone 7. Thanks, Claire
The following webpage shows a map of the chilling hours in the United States. https://extension.umd.edu/aronia/cultivation-range-0
Any peaches will grow fine in the District of Columbia, since the area receives more than enough chilling hours (~1600).
