Originated in Connecticut in 1912. J.H. Hale peach is still considered one of the best yellow-fleshed freestone peaches. Exceptionally large, round, and uniform with smooth, almost fuzzless skin. J.H. Hale peach tree has firm, fine-grained flesh free from stringiness and great flavor. A favorite for canning or eating fresh off the tree, this one is a timeless classic.
