Loring Peach

Prunus persica 'Loring'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

Loring peach is a very attractive, large yellow peach with a hint on red blush. It has very firm, melting yellow flesh with excellent flavor. It is freestone and ripens in mid-season about midway between Redhaven and Elberta. It has gained a good reputation as one of the better eating peaches.

Grandpa used to grow some Loring on the farm, but not a lot. In Michigan it had a reputation as not being quite as hardy as other varieties and not as red as the market wanted. It was bred in Missouri and released to fruit growers in 1946.
