A New Jersey, USA peach variety
A new introduction from the Rutgers University breeding program in New Jersey. This early white-fleshed, clingstone peach has excellent firmness and extremely enjoyable eating qualities with great flavor. The fruit of this variety will hang on the tree for 2 weeks after maturity without significant loss of firmness. 80 to 90% pinkish scarlet red over cream red. Low acid with very good flavour.
Trees are vigorous and very productive. This variety had some susceptibility to bacterial leaf spot and should be trialled before heavily planted where this disease is a problem.
