Honey Babe Peach
Red Speckled Flesh
Rich, firm, sweet, freestone fruit. Honey Babe is a large peach with a deep red over yellow skin. Its flesh is orange, speckled with red, and has a superb flavor. Honey Babe is excellent for fresh eating.
This genetic dwarf tree grows very slowly into a wide, ornamental bush. It displays showy, pink blossoms and bears when young, usually the same year it is planted. It ripens in mid July. Light pruning during the summer and winter is required for best quality.
Honey Babe is self-fertile, but has better yields if pollinated with Nectar Babe. It requires 500-600 chilling hours and was developed by Floyd Zaiger.
