Finally got a good crops of Flat Wonderful peach. Sweet and good. Yellow cling stone.
I tried some Galaxy the other day and we really liked them. Made me start thinking about other peaches to plant next spring.
Good to hear. I just put a Flat Wonderful in the ground this year. It is a very attractive tree.
I liked the reddish leaves. Good looking tree.
Thats funny that peach looks like my Tangos. My Flat Wonderful had lots of red streaks on them. FW was not very sweet for me. Tangos is coming in now for me, its nice and sweet.
I just planted a Tangos this spring. I have to wait a couple of years to compare the two.
"Thats funny that peach looks like my Tangos. My Flat Wonderful had lots of red streaks on them. "
That was my first thought too, when I saw Tony's picture. I picked the first TangOs of the season today. Looks like Tony's pic.
My Flat Wonderful also have red streaks. Here they taste pretty decent for an early peach.
All that said, Tony, your peach is probably Flat Wonderful. I doubt you would be harvesting TangOs at the same time I do here in KS. Plus, if your tree has red foliage, it's almost certainly a Flat Wonderful. I have a lot of peach varieties and Flat Wonderful is the only one w/ red foliage.
My Tangos leaves are green and FW leaves are red. I may have a sport of Flat Wonderful?
I believe Tangos and Flat Wonderful are both Rutgers projects.
That might explain the similarities.
I have Tangos and Tangos2 and hopefully will have fruit in a year or two.
It's possible it's a sport, but probably just some weather/climate variability. I get a lot of variability in the amount of red in peaches, based on location in the canopy and the weather during fruit swell.
If all the peaches on the tree, or that particular branch continue to be orange/yellow then it probably is a sport.
GD is correct. Both TangOs and Flat Wonderful are out of the NJ breeding program.
