Peaches and Nectarines

  • With a few exceptions noted below, many peaches are very similar in flavor and hard to describe other than "sweet and peachy". There can be some subtle diffences, though, so feel free to talk with us when you visit for recommendations!

007

AKA PF24-007. Yellow peach; freestone. Typically very large, much like the skills of our favorite fictional spy “Bond, James Bond.”

Ambre

Yellow nectarine; freestone

Autumn Star

Yellow peach; freestone.

Autumn Supreme

Yellow peach; freestone.

Avalon

Yellow nectarine; freestone

Bowden

White nectarine. Freestone. A distinct delicious flavor combined with an unusual characteristic called "non-melting flesh". This means that the fruit will not get super-soft like normal peaches and nectarines do...and that's ok with this one! Give it a couple of days at room temperature to soften a little...it will have a little bit of "give" to it, kind of like a tennis ball. Slice or bite in, then be wowed by both the flavor and texture of this very unique nectarine! Ripens in late July.

Carene

Yellow nectarine; freestone

Challenger

Yellow peach; freestone. Great peach flavor in a small package!

China Pearl

White peach; freestone. This white peach always wins rave reviews - it has a sweet and amazing flavor with a lovely lingering finish, and the smooth creamy texture is to die for.

Coralstar

Yellow peach; freestone.

Desiree

Yellow peach; clingstone. Developed by the New Jersey AES at Rutgers University.

Early Gem

AKA PF1. Yellow peach; clingstone. The first peaches of the year! Fairly small, but these have good flavor for such an early peach.
