Fruit is large and firm. Freestone variety. Flavor is very sweet. Excellent for jams and jellies. Ripens in early August.

This is an improved version of the Belle of Georgia, Fruit is slightly larger, has a pronounced red blush, ripens about 10 days earlier. It is an excellent peach for home use, and if planted with Belle of Georgia extends the peach harvest.
