We like the white varieties best. Raritan Rose and Blushing Star. Have grown both for 20 yrs. They bruise easy. We slice and freeze. Make fruit slush and home made ice cream. I don't know of any peach trees that are disease or bug free. You prune, keep it healthy and latex paint the trunk to deter borers. We also have twig borers on our yellow peach tree. If you don't have good air flow, brown rot is a concern. Our local orchards haven't grown peaches for years. They take some TLC but are well worth it.
