Hi Betty:

You noted Pacific Northwest, I wonder how far northwest and if the chill 
hours may be conducive to a zone 5, borderline almost 6?
They sound astounding if the taste is reminiscent of the earlier rendition.
Thanks for the ditty....

Best of growing,
~Gianni

  An interesting article. I particularly noticed the remark about the
  Crawford peach, "intense, classically rich flavor." I have heard it
  referred to in the Pacific Northwest also. The late James Beard, a Portland
  native, wrote about the Crawford harvest in the fall, and I have talked
  with people who could remember the early years of the 20th century and said
  the Crawford was the greatest for flavor.
