Post Peaches Resistant to Peach Leaf Curl
I'm trying to find as many peaches resistant to peach leaf curl as possible. This is a partial list of some supposed to have resistance to curl:
Indian free, Oregon curl free, Q18, Frost, Avalon Pride, Charlotte, California curlfree, Autumn Rose (aka "Black Boy"), John Muir, Harken

If you know of others not on this list, I'd like to know of them. Also any and all sources in case I've overlooked some.
Thank you muchly. :P

I don't have personal experience, but there have been a number of past topics that you might be able to glean some information from:

You might add Mary Jane to that list. I think it originally came from Raintree.

All my seedling peaches developed bad leaf curl, but the Mary Jane did not get even a touch of it. I have only had it one winter, so maybe I need to observe it for more winters before it is declared curl-proof!

I would like to find sources of good leaf curl resistant seed and other interesting peaches that can grow well here. This is probably a pointless endeavor because that specific resistance is probably a recessive trait or rare. I have noted some purple leaf vintage peach seedlings being sold on ebay and think i shared that w/Plumfun. Anyway - peaches from pits often turn out pretty good and there was a pink double flowered one we passed around a lot in San Diego.

:mrgreen:

Here is the kicker: Mary Jane is mounted on Pumi-select which is suppose to make it more susceptible to certain bacterial diseases. I am holding my breath on this peach, could it really be curl resistant or curl-proof? Time will tell!

The seedling peach's mentioned are volunteers in the garden area. They have curl bad, but I don't care. They are merely rootstock for other things.

Lon, by "find" do you mean name only, or are you trying to acquire them all? Somebody really should start a PNW peach breeding program that breeds only the resistant to the resistant, hopefully producing many resistant cultivars, some might even be homozygous for the trait.

How many on your list do you actually grow?

I am also interested and have found some. book.google.com-
Quote:
annual report of the dept of ag vol 23 lists these as the most resistant at that time: Early Crawford, Fitzgerald, Gold Drop, Hills Chili, Kalamazoo, Late Crawford, Smock and salway

ars.usda and nrsp5 have some of these

Also, using the ars grin accessions search- leaf curl resistance- Rogany Goy, Tuscan Cling/Tuskena, gold drop

google search shows that cresthaven and villa ada are being tested for leaf curl resistant progeny

So they are out there if you search long enough and I sure hope that someone grafts these and reports back!

You can add Suncrest to your list. I got mine from Al's in Woodburn.

I have a seedling of Rio Oso Gem Peach that is fairly resistant to Curl, but not immune. Nice looking tree--- actually there are two of them. I got it from a guy named Adam Connely in Puallup. He gave me some Peaches from another seedling of Rio Oso Gem that does very well for him in Puyallup.
