7 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 for 2020 our ripening dates seem to be a few days ahead of average UPDATED September 17 2020
DONUT PEACH finished for 2020
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 EARLY AUGUST finishing up for 2020
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 EARLY TO MID AUGUST finished for 2020
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 finished for 2020
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 FOR 2020, IT WILL BE A LIMITED CROP
SUNCREST PEACH FIRM RIPE FINISHED for 2020
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 finished for 2020
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
SLAPPY I hesitate to even mention them, we have a few trees, they are only u pick only because they bruise terribly. This is an antique variety and was once popular for canning. We will not pick them for you because no matter what people say they will complain that we bruised their peaches. finished for 2020
ELEGANT LADY CLOSE finished for the 2020 season
SOLID, GOOD FOR ALL USES, VERY TASTY PEACH AND IS NOT OVERLY DELICATE. RIPENS MID TO LATE AUGUST
ELBERTA finished for 2020
CLASSIC CANNING PEACH, IT IS JUST A GREAT PEACH. MELTING TEXTURE, SWEET AND VERY FREESTONE. GOOD FOR ALL USES. OFTEN RIPE AROUND LABOR DAY
ANGELES finished for 2020
GREAT PEACH FOR EATING AND CANNING, THEY CAN GET QUITE LARGE
J H HALE finished for 2020
EXCELLENT CANNING PEACH THAT GETS RIPE ALONG WITH ELBERTA
GOLD MEDAL finished for 2020
THIS IS REALLY AN ELBERTA THAT HAS A SPOT (THE MEDAL) GREAT CANNING PEACH AND AN EXCELLENT PEACH FOR ALL USES
O HENRY finished for 2020 season
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
