As you know I have had a spring frost that has left me without harvest, for this reason I can only show some variety that has been saved from the frost.
The other day in another post, you could see the Jalon yellow skin peach variety.
Today I am going to show you a variety of peach with white skin (albino), and premium quality.
As you know, the white skin peach varieties come from Asian countries, and the best ones are found in Korea and Japan (especially in Japan, in Okayama prefecture).
Here you can see some of them, of which I have in my orhard the Shimizu and Akurei varieties, but both are of later maturity than the variety that we are going to treat.
The variety that we will see today is marketed under the name “Ice Peach”.
It is a obtention from the Spanish company and breeder Plantinova , that has obtained the Ice Peach variety through hybridizations of the Korean white skin peach variety Yume Yong, in order to obtain “premium” quality varieties of peaches .
From this collection of varieties, I have in my orchard the clones:
That differ in the ripening dates ( they are practically identical)
What they have eliminated from the primeval variety is the pink color of the skin, and the pink color of the flesh .
They have improved the texture, and it is a type of subacid peach, very aromatic, and with very high brix levels.
Obviously its strong point is its beauty both external and internal , it is a work of art , looking for the ivory color, both outside and inside.
Before showing photographs, I will tell you it’s harvested at least 5-7 days before its optimum point, but my daughter wanted to take her boyfriend’s family who lives in another autonomous community a box of peaches, and we have harvested them few days before of the optimal point of maturation (I say this because in those days their brix values would increase)
So let’s check it out.

Due to medical leave for two of my employees due to bone fractures whit the ice of the storm Filomena , this is my only free afternoon a week and I have spent two hours preparing this short report of this peach for all of you.
So I hope everyone enjoys it.
