Tropic Snow, the White Peach

 Our two year old "tropic snow" peach tree is the centerpiece of the orchard right now. 
At this early age, it's giving it's fair share of peaches just as our other early peach varieties are finishing up their harvest time. Tropic Snow, a white-fleshed semi freestone peach with a melt in your mouth sweetness and a wonderful soft peachy-pink blush is one of our favorite new varieties this year.
 Although, not enough peaches are available to share at the neighborhood fruit stand this season, (hopefully next spring) there is enough for one Father"s Day peach cobbler on Sunday! 

Check out this beauty of a peach! She is small but beautiful!

I have one peach tree. Homegrown peaches are a truly nothing like those in the market, not even the farmer's market! I was going to plant several trees, but then I got goats. Did you know that wilted peach leaves (not dried, not fresh) are toxic to goats? I take care after windstorms that no leaves get in the goat paddock.

What a bountiful harvest. I love peaches and yours look so tantalising.

I am drooling at those photos - I am surprised that any of the peaches made it into the cobbler!

Hi JIll - thanks for becoming a follower of my blog. I just hope my peach tree gives me as many fruit as yours one day

Well, the plums look so delicious. Too bad I live so far away; I'd be first in line.

Love your site. How do you keep the birds out of your peach and plum trees?
