Fruits in early summer, far ahead of most others!

So succulent and sweet, with wonderful hints of raspberry and no acidity.
White peaches are all the rage, but the ones in the supermarket have traveled too far, and been handled too roughly, to do the fruit any favors. What you need is fresh-from-the-tree gourmet flavor, and that's just what you'll find in White Delight #2!

Developed for areas with mild winters, which typically don't get enough chill hours to ripen other white peaches, White Delight #2 is also just perfect for cooler areas, too. It blooms and fruits earlier than most others, setting a big crop of medium to large fruit about 3 to 4 inches in diameter, with rosy skin and creamy flesh. Unlike traditional yellow-fleshed peaches, there is no acidity in the bite -- it has floral undertones, with perhaps a hint of raspberry as it reaches its peak of ripeness. Just sweet flavor and ultra-soft, mellow texture! There's nothing like it in the world!

White Delight #2 is a descendant of Summer Sweet, and is a semi-freestone borne very abundantly on upfacing branches, banked by 3- to 6-inch leaves of soft green. The tree is quite ornamental in its own right, but nothing equals the flavor of its fruit, and you will want to grow your own little grove!

The show begins in spring when every branch of the tree is decorated with showy 1½-inch white-to-pink blooms. After the flowers pass, the fruit begins to grow, maturing by early summer. (You'll know it's ready when a light twist and tug pulls the fruit free easily from its stem!) Reaching 10 feet tall within just 5 years of planting, it boasts a nice vase-like shape and eventually tops out at about 15 to 25 feet high and wide. What a good choice for the front yard, the patio, or an accent in the back garden!

Developed by Texas A&M University, White Delight #2 is part of a new series of gourmet white peaches bred just for low-chill climates. You won't believe how delectable these aromatic, ultra-sweet peaches are! Zones 5-9.
