Description

'Burpeachfive' was patented 04/02/2002 by The Burchell Nursery, Inc., Oakdale, CA. It is patent number US PP12,505 P2. The Burpeachfive peach is characterized as to novelty and is otherwise noteworthy by producing fruit which ripens in mid-season; is considered very high quality; and which further is very firm and has an attractive coloration. In this regard, the present variety of peach tree bears fruit which are ripe for commercial harvesting and shipment in approximately the last days of June and/or the first days of July. This is approximately the same harvesting period as the common commercial freestone Peach variety named Flamecrest. However, the present variety is distinguishable from the Flamecrest by its highly colored skin, exceptionable firmness and extremely flavorful flesh quality.
