All of my orchard has been good this year but my "Champion" white peaches
were very good. They were softball size and extremely juicy and flavorful.
They are starting to get a little brown rot but the August drought has kept
them in better shape than usual. The tree was from Interstate Nurseries in
Hamburg, Iowa, which is now defunct. I live in SW Iowa zone 5. Judson L.

Alan, I also find I generally like the yellow (and red) peaches more
than the white ones. This year I had some white peaches which made me
revise my opinion up a bit however: the Silver Logan (but it got rot
badly) and the "Oldmixon Free Improved". Plus I like several of the
white-fleshed "donut" peaches a lot. All of these have some common
flavor which is very good, and which is not mild like my Georgia Belle/
Carolina Belle/Stark Summer Pearl. The closest thing that comes to my
mind is a very ripe honeydew melon, but without the cloying element of
I had bad rot problems on several peach varieties this year. Just
today I had to remove half of my Sweet Bagel peaches due to rot. The
Lemon Free also got it very badly, plus the Silver Logan as mentioned
