Gardeners' Notes:

Positive beazert On Jun 11, 2010, beazert from Decatur, TX wrote:

Haven't tasted the peaches yet (raccoons/squirrels get them every year), but tree blooms magnificiently, and for the flowers alone is worth having as a landscape tree. It is our first tree to bloom; sometimes too soon as a late frost can nail the flowers. Very vigorous. Stands up to heat and wind.

This is next to ripen after the Belle of Georgia. As the name implies it has a very colorful red skin. It is a soft yellow fleshed peach, One of the more tasty of the yellow fleshed cultivars that I have tried, It has much more flavor than the Elberta which ripens in the same time slot. Too soft for a good market peach but outstanding for home use.
