This tree produces a fruit that is very large and has yellow skin overlaid with red. It has yellow flesh. Fruits are very sweet and are a wonderful tasting.

Fruit trees are deep rooted, so good drainage of the subsoil is critical to proper root development.

Requires pruning and thinning for consistent, quality crops. Moderate fertility and good drainage a must.

Late season peach.
