We had a peach tree in Kentucky. So it can be done.

Some varieties of the peach tree can do well further north than is generally understood. (Same thing w/ various hybrids of many other plants.)

As the article linked below notes, the Elberta Peach has a range throughout the U.S. planting zones 5-9 which dovetails with my childhood memories of my aunt & uncle having Elberta Peach trees in their suburban Chicago back yard.

I lived in Atlanta for 20 years and recently moved to Colorado. To my surprise, Colorado has an excellent peach. They grow them in an area near Palisades, Colorado on the west part of the state. Even has a peach festival this time of year.

I'm sure they exist but I guess one would expect to see an abundance of them.

Then you need to leave Atlanta and go to Peach county - we've hundreds of thousands of peach trees.

Dickey's in Musella is the oldest family owned peach packing shed in the state if I remember correctly. My grandmother ran a peach stand ( intersection of 341 and 74) for them from 1959-2012. The orchards were handed over to her after the pickers were done. My grandfather helped until he passed in 1982. I helped her in the early 90's, then again in the early 2000's. She worked in the orchards until she was 99. I would dare say she picked more peaches in her lifetime than 99% of peach pickers. The Macon Telegraph did an articles on her declaring her as "The Peach Lady" She wouldn't pick a green peach and customers would drive from FL and surrounding states after putting in "orders" for special hand picked peaches. Best day we ever had , just 2 "old" folks picking was 262 peck baskets. Most asked for peach was "Red Globe". Peaches today are picked before they are ripe and are tasteless
