Excellent White Peach with Distinguished Family Ties

Belle of Georgia, or the White Elberta Peach as it was referred to in the early 1880's, was the sister plant of the Elberta Peach. Both are famous Georgia Peaches with a common ancestor.

Both varieties originated from the seeds produced by Chinese Cling trees owned by I.C. Plant.

Colonel Lewis A. Rumph received seeds of 10 peach varieties from his family friend, I.C. Plant in 1857.

Col. Rumph was a member of a highly regarded fruit growing family. His son, Lewis A. Rumph and wife Virginia, and his grandson, Samuel Rumph, both received Chinese Cling peach seeds to plant.

Not so long after this planting, the selection of the Elberta Peach was made by Samuel, while Lewis selected a very promising white peach from his seedlings fruit.

It is said that at the time, Lewis wanted to name the fruit after his wife but was concerned about the credit going to the state of Virginia, and not his home state of Georgia. Instead, the name Belle was chosen, honoring Virginia's mother.

The Belle of Georgia, like the Elberta, quickly achieved local appreciation and in time became as popular as the Elberta was, as a famous Georgia Peach. Today, it is considered one of the most adaptable white peach available.
