O’Henry Peach

September 29th, 2009 | Fruit Maven

If you like to eat stuff that is good for you and pretend it is a candy bar, then this is the fruit for you!
APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★☆

Muted reds and oranges, with bright sunny yellow flesh

AROMA Rating: ★★★☆☆

Bright and fresh, only slightly sweet

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★½☆

Fuzzy peel, smooth juicy flesh

TASTE Rating: ★★★★☆

Sweet flavor, not particularly complicated but good. The peel has an herbal taste that I find very intriguing.

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★½☆

Interestingly enough I found the peel of this fruit to be the most alluring part. Herbal and woodsy, it took this very good, juicy peach up another level.

    My family had a peach tree when I was very young. They were wonderful juicy and sweet. There have only been 2 times since then that I’ve had peaches so good. A librabrian I know gave me a bag from her garden. YUM! And my boss gave be his fruit of the month peaches since he knew I loved them. YUM again. You cannot get a good peach in a store and I’ve tried.

    I agree Pat — great peaches are really hard to find.

    If you happen to live in rural South Carolina or Georgia, yeah, you can get a great peach in a store.

    Good luck anywhere else, though!

    Well I just received a box of O’Henry peaches from Frog Hollow Farms that I haven’t tried yet. So we will see. Their Warren Pears are delicious so I’m hopeful.

    [...] a box of six gorgeous peaches in the mail. Ohhhhh! How exciting. I opened it and saw the name O’Henry Peaches. Bee-boop. Big let down. I’ve had them before. (You can read a more detailed review here). [...]
