THOMPSON'S FARM PEACH VARIETIES


updated 9/24/22

check the home page for current  information.  The 22 crop experienced a blizzard while some of the varieties were blooming, so some varieties are quite sparce and others fairly normal. 

that's farming




  RIPENING DATES ARE DIFFICULT TO PREDICT BECAUSE WEATHER MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

I WILL ANNOUNCE EACH VARIETY ON THIS WEBSITE AND I AM HAPPY TO SEND EMAIL UPDATES




 DONUT PEACH    finished for 22

RIPENS FIRST IN OUR SEASON.  SMALL, FLAT AND VERY SWEET, HAS WHITE FLESH AND A PINK BLUSH.  IS EXTREMELY DELICATE AND BRUISES EASILY.  THEY ARE DIFFICULT TO PICK WITHOUT TEARING THE SKIN AT THE STEM END.



RED HAVEN PEACH  finished for 22 very small crop and a number of split pit , caused by heat last summer or conditions this spring?  We are not sure.  We are getting just a few boxes a day and their condition is not great.


FULL SIZE PEACH , YELLOW FLESH AND SWEET TART FLAVOR.  SOME WILL CAN THESE BUT I WOULD NOT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO BE SUPER RIPE TO BE  FREESTONE AND THAT IS TOO MUCH WORK.  THEY ARE HOWEVER EXCELLENT FOR FRESH EATING.  I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THEY ARE GOOD FOR FREEZING BUT I HAVE NEVER FROZEN PEACHES.



 ROSA PEACH  finished for 22


THIS IS THE FIRST OF THE PEACHES THAT I WOULD CONSIDER CANNING.  IT WILL BE FREESTONE WHEN FULLY RIPE AND HAS YELLOW FLESH AND A FAIRLY SOLID TEXTURE.  AS THE SEASON PROGRESSES THE PEACHES SEEM TO GET LESS FIBROUS AND WILL HAVE A MORE MELTING TEXTURE.


DELP HALE PEACH    2022  crop failure


SOLID YELLOW PEACH WITH GOOD TEXTURE AND VERY SWEET WHEN RIPE.  A GOOD CANNER. UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE VERY FEW DELP HALE TREES LEFT AND CANNOT FIND REPLACEMENTS SO WHILE WE WILL HAVE SOME , IT WILL BE A LIMITED CROP


 SUNCREST PEACH  finished for 22

THIS IS A WONDERFUL PEACH.  SOLID YELLOW FLESH AND VERY SWEET WHEN FULLY RIPE.  IT ALSO TRAVELS WELL FOR A PEACH.  THEY ARE SOMETIMES QUITE LARGE.  THESE ARE GOOD FOR CANNING AND ALL RIPE PEACHES ARE GOOD FOR FRESH EATING BUT THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES

RIPENS MID TO LATE AUGUST


WHITE PEACH    crop failure

SUPER SWEET AND SUPER DELICATE , FLESH IS WHITE AND I WOULD SUGGEST PICKING THEM  ON THE FIRMER SIDE BECAUSE THEY LOVE TO BRUISE,  RIPENS MID TO LATE AUGUST



ELEGANT LADY   finished 22


SOLID, GOOD FOR ALL USES, VERY TASTY PEACH AND IS NOT OVERLY DELICATE.  RIPENS MID TO LATE AUGUST


ELBERTA   finishing any minute

CLASSIC CANNING PEACH, IT IS JUST A GREAT PEACH.  MELTING TEXTURE, SWEET AND VERY FREESTONE. GOOD FOR ALL USES.  OFTEN RIPE AROUND LABOR DAY


REDSKIN  crop failure


ANGELES  finished for 22

GREAT PEACH FOR EATING AND CANNING, THEY CAN GET QUITE LARGE


J H HALE  finishing any minute


EXCELLENT CANNING PEACH THAT GETS RIPE ALONG WITH ELBERTA


GOLD MEDAL finished for 22


THIS IS REALLY AN ELBERTA THAT HAS A SPOT (THE MEDAL)  GREAT CANNING PEACH AND AN EXCELLENT PEACH FOR ALL USES


O HENRY   finishing


WONDERFULL PEACH AND THE LAST PEACH OF THE SEASON FOR US.  WE USUALLY PICK IT IN EARLY SEPTEMBER AND YOU CAN USE IT FOR BOTH CANNING AND FRESH EATING
