The Canadian peach cultivar "Renton" has been claimed to have some
resistance to leaf curl. The entry in Brooks and Olmo says
"Renton. - orig.in Coquitlam, B.C., Canada by Jack Renton. Introd. in
1940. Parentage unknown, discovered in 1926. Fruit: flesh yellow,
semi-freestone; resembles Howard Fisher. Tree more resistant to leaf
curl than are other varieties."
Renton used to be sold by the David Hunter Garden Centres around
Vancouver in the 1980's, but they may be out of business. I think it was
strictly a home garden cultivar.
Perhaps it may exist in a U.S. collection.
