Juicy Peach

Juicy Peach

SKU: 000137

IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Deadline for Fall 2023 Orders is May 01st/2023.

Orders will be grafted this Spring, and should be ready in the Fall/2023.

A grafting request is an order for us to produce the specific tree that we don't currently have available in stock. We must graft the tree and then it must go through a multi-month process to heal and grow. Only Once the small tree has completed two flushes of growth since it was grafted do we consider it ready to leave our nursery.

Juicy Peach is from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL (planting number F-29), reportedly a seedling of Tommy Atkins that may have had 'Gary' as its pollen parent.

 

The fruit are roundish yellow developing pink blush at the top as they approach maturity. The flesh is *extremely* soft, fiberless, with a lovely bright peach flavor that many people enjoy. The seed is monoembryonic. The fruit has a short shelf life unfortunately and stores/handles poorly due to its exceptionally soft flesh. 

 

The tree itself is a very vigorous grower with spreading growth habit and dense canopy. We have been a little disappointed in its fruit-retention and production overall, but the tree has fruited every year for the past 5+ seasons or so. Its flowers and small developing fruit may be somewhat anthracnose prone, but on a positive note Juicy Peach appears to be resistant to mango bacterial black spot and rot fungi, likely owing to its paternal Gary parentage. It reportedly performs well in southern California.

 

Juicy Peach is a mid-season variety ripening mostly in July for us.
