Elegant Lady Peaches
Approximate availability at HCO is August 4 to August 15.
The Elegant Lady is a variety of peach that is a great example of the rich color that a peach can acquire if it is picked tree-ripened. It has about 90% dark red covering the peach and shorter fuzz which contributes to its dark color. It is a little more susceptible to frost so sometimes a lower crop is produced. However, the ripened peach is very attractive with a firm round shape to it that makes it look like a traditional peach. It ripens just after the Suncrest variety and is a freestone peach.
