Hubby agrees. We have two Strawbery Free peaches that just aren’t good enough to put up with them being clingstone. We want something more flavorful, that will be cood for canning, as that is the main way we preserve our harvest.
I have a few varieties I have heard good things about. I need to buy one tree, but have two I can graft over/ top work if I can get enough scion.
I am considering June Pride, as it sounds flavorful, and might be earlier then Redhaven.
Rio Oso Gem as it is liked on the west coast, and Scott says very good things about it.
Also thinking about using scion off our Silver Logan, as it was liked by everyone that tried it. My only concern with that idea is this young tree had gumosis, though it seems to be growing, and set and sized a decent crop. As much as I like the Silver Logan, I am also a variety glutton and could easily be talked into trying something great that I don’t have yet. Lol
Other contenders would be O’Henry, Red Baron, Baby Crawford and any other great flavored firm freestone that might thrive here in our great zone 8 climate.
Very open to suggestions.
Thanks to all in advance.
