My favorite peach the the yellow, freestone peach. They are sometimes called the Texas Yellow peach and I have bought some called Colorado Yellow peach this year. I do peel them and then push in with my thumb and they separate easily from the stone leaving two peach halves. They have a very distinct sweet and slightly tart taste. Harvest season seems to only last a couple of weeks each year and they do not have a good shelf life.


My favorite peach used to be a white meat peach called by most people "the Indian peach". When I was a kid, I would drive a truck to an orchard in northern Arkansas and buy them in cases ready for resale back home. I haven't seen one of those peaches in over fifty years. I only saw them in the one orchard in Arkansas. I hope the variety didn't die out.

It didn't and you can still buy them.
Indian free white peach.
One of the few peaches that require a pollinator.

All I know is she cooked chopped apples and cider down into a rich paste.
Took hours and I had to do the stirring many times.

The apple cider has reduced to 1/2 volume so far.
This is taking forever and taking up the stove space.
I have been forced to eat pecan pie and drink whisky for nourishment.
