  List Members:

  I've hit a wall trying to locate a particular peach and was wondering if
anyone on the list may have some suggestions as to where to find it.  A
friend of mine suggested I try growing a peach called 'White Champion.'  I
checked the Fruit, Berry and Nut Inventory to see which nurseries carry it
and was surprised that only one is listed as having carried it since 1988:
Henry Field's.   Unfortunately, it's not listed in their current online
catalog.

  Is anyone on the list familiar with this peach?  Does anyone on the list
know of a nursery who may have trees of it for sale?  I'm going to give
Henry Field's a call tomorrow, but given all the charges they've gone
through in the recent past, I would feel more comfortable buying from
another nursery if someone else indeed carries it.

  If you've grown 'White Champion', would you mind letting me know your
impressions of it?

  Thanks for the feedback.

  John
