J. H. Hale Peach

Prunus persica 'J.H. Hale'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

J.H. Hale is still an excellent flavored, freestone, eating and canning peach. It ripens quite late, with Elberta. It has large, golden yellow fruit with a carmine overlay. The flesh is fine and deep grained and hangs and keeps well.

J.H. Hale is an old-time heirloom variety that has withstood the test of time. Grandpa still raised a few on the farm, until redder shipping peaches came along. J.H. Hale has been used as a parent for many peach breeders because of its excellent fruit characteristics.
