Veteran Peach


Veteran Peach

Prunus persica Mid-Late. Ont-1940208 (Vaughan x Early Elberta) Vineland Stn, Ontario, 1928.

Soft yellow melting semi-freestone flesh of good quality. Vigorous, reliable and productive. Medium-large fruit is mostly yellow-skinned with a flash of red. Not so much a fresh-eating peach, but has gained a reputation as an excellent canner. Peels easily and tastes like August in a jar. “Cuz the canned goods that I buy at the store/ Ain’t got the summer in ’em anymore.”

Ripens 3–4 weeks after Redhaven, about canning time. Hardy enough for most New England peach-growing yards. Z4/5. (3– 6' bare-root trees)
