None better
Reviewed By: Angi (Indianapolis, IN)
This is our 4th year with this tree. We got full size peaches this year and family and friends are begging me to let them buy some off of us because they were so good! But my husband won't budge as you can't buy flavor this good! Canned and Froze them, cannot believe how good they are!!

They just don't get any better than these! Can't find them any sweeter (and a beautiful peach at that). Ordered a second tree!

Best Peach Tree Ever!
Reviewed By: Leslie (Mapleton, UT)
This little tree is amazing. I have gotten peaches every year since the year after I planted it. Utah is notorious for unstable spring weather. This has not affected my tree at all. The peaches taste amazing and each year they have gotten bigger. I am in love with this tree!
