description for "Peach and Nectarine: Prunus persica 'Starking Delicious'"

'Starking Delicious' peach is a strong, vigorous tree with freestone 'Elbertas' that ripen a full 3 weeks earlier than 'July Elberta,' but 5 to 6 weeks ahead of regular 'Elbertas.' You'll get loads of big, golden 2-inch peaches. You'll love the medium-firm, sweet flesh for canning and freezing because the skin slips off so easily. Harvest mid-July in Zone 5. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
