A Juicy, Cold-Hardy Peach
Large, very firm, fine-flavored, with yellow freestone. The Suncrest Peach has a bright red skin over yellow. The red skin is about 80% red with the yellow background. The flesh is yellow and exceptionally firm with good texture and flavor.
The tree is vigorous, self-fruitful, and a consistent producer. Its blossoms are frost hardy, and it has a hardiness record that was tested in Eastern sites.
The Suncrest Peach is a succulent, juicy peach with firm flesh. It can be eaten fresh, used in pies, preserves, jellies and is exceptionally good for canning.
It is ready to harvest at the end of July in central California and requires 700 hours of chilling. The Suncrest Peach originated in Fresno, California and was introduced in 1959.
