Grows well in the Western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. More resistant to peach leaf curl than Redhaven which I also grow.

Fruit ready to eat in late July, about one month before Redhaven.

I have a dwarf rather than a regular tree of this cultivar so my comparisons are suspect. It is a white fleshed large peach with the red coloration of the Carolina Belle. It is about 10 days earlier than the Carolina Belle. ( I try to have fresh peaches from the earliest to the latest) It does not set a profusion of peaches. I have never had to thin it and sometimes the yield is abysmally low. Flavor is good but cannot match the belles.
