That's a good way to put it, Alan.  I wouldn't want anyone to get the impression from me that it wasn't worth growing if it was the only peach they could grow.  Far from it.  What I'm judging (in my inexperience) is a matter of small degrees.  For instance, I could compare it to tomatoes.  Everyone knows home grown tomatoes (whatever popular variety) are infinitely better than store bought.  But home grown Brandywines are generally recognized to be more tasty than a homegrown hybrid types like, say, an Early Girl.  Well, I would compare Reliance to an Early Girl, and, say, a Harken peach, to a Brandywine, but both are certainly good.
