We first bought this peach in the spring of 2013. That year we had about 20 peaches but lost all but 2 of them to what we believe were raccoons. Then, we had three summers of nothing at all. This spring was very different. Our weeping cherry tree which had also been purchased in 2013 and had also never bloomed gave us quite show of blossoms. Our peach tree has given us close to 30 peaches so far. Many are not perfect having bug holes and perhaps bird bites in them. Some grew around branches awkwardly deforming them. But they taste great. Sweet and juicy!
