Avalon Pride is an early-season yellow-fleshed peach with a good flavour. It is one of the most resistant varieties to peach-leaf curl, a fungal infection which is endemic in many parts of Europe.
Pick the fruits when they are still firm and allow to ripen indoors.
Like many peaches Avalon Pride has very attractive pink blossom.

Avalon Pride is well suited to the climate of northern Europe, and has some tolerance of early frosts. For best results it should be planted in a sheltered position in full sun.
Although sometimes promoted as resistant to peach-leaf curl, it is by no means disease-proof, just a bit less susceptible than other varieties. It should therefore be protected from infection in late winter / early spring - covering the tree with a fleece is a good method.
Avalon Pride was discovered as a chance seedling growing near Seattle, USA in the 1990s.
