White Lady Peach is one of the early introductions by the world acclaimed Floyd Zaiger. Zaiger is best known for his work with interspecific hybrids, specifically the Plum Apricot crosses called Pluot's and Aprium's. His work has been heavily influenced by Luther Burbank.
Zaiger began hybridizing plants by crossing varieties of Azaleas and Rhododendrons in the early 1950's. At this time, he was in search of heat tolerant selections that would do well in the Central Valley of California.
Zaiger's work came to the attention of Fred Anderson, a well know fruit breeder of the time, often referred to as the father of the Nectarine. Anderson actually started his career as an assistant to the world renown plant breeder Luther Burbank, so there was another connection.
Anderson liked the work that Floyd was doing and offered him a job as a plant breeder. This began his life-long fascination with fruit hybridization.
The White Lady is an early successful Zaiger hybridizations and is known as a 'Sub Acid' fruit. At its introduction in 1985, White Lady was noted for its great size, flavor and red blush skin color. It's most memorable feature was the lack of acid. White Lady Peach is a mild flavored fruit that was very sweet when still eaten firm. 'Sub Acid' would remain a focus of Zaigers hybridizations.
White Lady Peach resulted from the combination of several different well-known varieties of fruit. A first-generation seedling, it came one tree that was a cross of O'Henry and Giant Babcock pollinated by another tree that was a cross of May Grande Nectarine and Sam Houston Peach.
It has proved to be widely adaptable and is planted it all peach growing regions throughout the United States today. You'll love the White Lady Peach!
