Prunus persica 'O'Henry'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

  • »  O'Henry Peach is one of the most popular peaches for western backyard orchards.

Grandpa's Choice™ O'Henry is a brightly colored, large peach with only a slight fuzz. The flesh is yellow, sweet and juicy with a little red streaking. The fruit is large, bright red, very firm and will keep well. The tree is productive and moderately vigorous. It is well suited to western areas, where it has been very popular. O'Henry ripens late in the season between J.H. Hale and Rio Osa Gem.

O'Henry was introduced from California around 1968. It was bred by Grant Merrill and is believed to be an open pollinated seedling of Merrill Bonaza, maybe crossed with a nectarine.
