I have two of these trees by accident. I bought trees marketed as Belle of Georgia from two different local nurseries. It is a pale yellow fleshed peach about the same size as the Belle of Georgia and ripening in the same time frame. A fellow grower who grew fresh market peaches locally in the 30's and 40's recognized them as Hiley Belles. They are very productive, but not highly flavored.
