Grandpa's Choice™ Red Globe peach is an exception variety that ripens in mid-season, about three weeks after Redhaven. It is well suited to areas where bacterial spot is not a problem. The fruit it medium large and almost perfectly round. It has a very bright red skin color, with yellow flesh that is free from red through the flesh, but with a little red around the stone. It is very firm, fine textured, and freestone. It can be used for any purpose. The tree is productive, but the buds can be susceptible to early frosts.
Red Globe came from the breeding efforts of the United State Department of Agriculture, Beltsville, Maryland research station in 1954.
