J. H. Hale Peach
Prunus persica 'J.H. Hale'
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.
