Indian Free Peach / Lovell
Said to be one of the all-time highest rated fruits at taste tests, this heirloom variety was grown at Monticello by Thomas Jefferson, who prized it for its rich color, flavor and size.
Naturally resistant to peach leaf curl, the tree produces heavy crops of large, aromatic freestone peaches that have red skin and white flesh marbled with crimson stripes.
When fully ripe in mid to late season, the rich, sweet, distinctive flavor is excellent both eaten fresh and used in preserves and chutneys.
Plant another peach or nectarine as a pollinator.
