My area of Southwest Washington State has a lot of peach leaf curl disease, that limits which peaches can be grown. Q-1-8, also sold as "Salish Summer", has grown and produced peaches for 4 years in my garden, whereas most other peach varieties had significant to severe disease. So far this is the only variety that has done well for me here. The peaches are good, and productive. I am happy with this tree.

Peach leaf curl-resistant variety, tested at the WSU research station at Mt. Vernon, Washington. In the Dave Wilson Nursery orchards, the white-fleshed, semi-freestone fruit is sweet and juicy like Babcock, with a more sprightly flavor. Harvest mid to late July in Central Calif. Showy blossoms. 7-800 hours. Self-fruitful.
