Muted reds and oranges, with bright sunny yellow flesh
Bright and fresh, only slightly sweet
Fuzzy peel, smooth juicy flesh
Sweet flavor, not particularly complicated but good. The peel has an herbal taste that I find very intriguing.
OVERALL Overall Rating:
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.
Peaches stored in cold temperatures are unable to ripen and develop a meaty texture.
Buying and storing peaches
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.
