Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Gary-Both of these peach varieties are self-fertile and do not need cross pollination to produce fruit. You will get fruit if you decide to keep only one of these varieties. One advantage of planting two different varieties is that you are assured you will have plenty of peaches every year. Factors such as climate and pruning procedures can at times vary the amount of crop you will get from a tree. Having a few different varieties may help to assure you will have plenty of fruit each year. I have never grown these varieties but some can be harvested earlier than others. Because of this two varieties may give you a longer harvest giving you fruit for a longer period of time each year.

Please ask if you have any other questions.
