Greens Special | Peach | Seedling
We now offer more and more cultivars as seedlings. We are doing this because we believe them to be a superior way to grow our genetically stable heritage varieties. Modern peaches do not grow true in the same way, and so we trial all cultivars before offering them to you. The trees are stronger and more disease resistant, but grow in size to be somewhere in between the smaller Marianna rootstock and the larger peach rootstock. We tip the central leaders in the nursery to produce a low branched tree most suitable for home gardeners.
Out of stock
Large, freestone, yellow fleshed peach with a red tinge when ripe.
Given by Maureen Green. Her brother in law, David Green, said “My father, Fred Green, bought two Golden Beauty and two Campbell Seedlings from the nursery of Woodyear Smith at Matakana in 1940. Both freestone and ripe in early February. A seedling grew from one of these which was freestone and ripe late march. We called it “Green’s Seedling”.
