Flamecrest

Approximate availability at HCO is August 8 to August 17.

This peach variety is very similar to the Elegant Lady. It ripens a few days after the Elegant Lady variety, it has shorter fuzz and a very round, firm shape to it. However, this variety does not get quite as red as the Elegant Lady, yet it is bright red on a yellow background. There is a shadowy outline of a fireflame on the skin of the peach. This variety usually yields a larger crop than other varieties and produces an unusually large peach for such a large crop. It normally ripens a few days after the Elegant Lady and is a freestone variety.
