Sweet, aromatic, medium-large, yellow-fleshed freestone combines excellent flavor with late-blooming flowers and disease resistance. Delicious, very RELIABLE, and excellent quality peach with a very sweet, tangy flavor and excellent smooth texture. Mango-like flavor and texture. Excellent bud hardiness and late-blooming flowers resist and avoid bud damage from late spring frosts, thus bettering the chances of producing a nice crop even in a late freeze year, thus succeeding in harsh springs where most other peaches fail completely.
