Who says you can't grow peaches in Montana

My Frost Peach has finally decided to bear some fruit. They are sorta on the small side but it’s the first crop. I thinned it some in July. Can’t wait to taste.


I’ve said it, because that’s what they use to tell me at the research station in Corvallis! But we just finished up a bag of excellent peaches grown near Dixon, MT, and you’re doing it, so I’m happy to be wrong. We also get some truly marvelous canteloupes and other melons from Dixon.

Congratulations and keep at it!


I think its a lot harder to accomplish this on the “East” side of the divide. Specially in the Helena valley where its almost desert like. If you don’t try how can you prove old proverbs wrong?:
