Description

Plant Patent #11591 (Adams County Nursery, Aspers, PA, 2000). This new and distinctive variety of peach tree produces a yellow-fleshed, freestone fruit that is attractively colored, large, firm and flavorful. It ripens prior to `Loring` and after `John Boy`, two midseason varieties grown in the Mid-Atlantic region. The fruit has a full red blush that is more attractive than `Loring` and similar to `John Boy`. The tree is vigorous and has a regular bearing habit.
