Planted my bare root tree last spring and harvested nineteen peaches this summer. Lots of beautiful peach blossoms in the spring, excellent sweet and juicy peaches this summer, but no fall leaf color last year, even though leaves didn't drop until late November. Does require heavy thinning. A very nice fruit tree.

"Unique white-fleshed fruit with a sunken center (shaped like a doughnut). Sweet, with a mild flavor described by some as almond-like. Ripens late June/early July in Central Calif. stimates chilling requirement, approx. 4-500 hours. Self-fruitful."
