white cling peach

grannykathieAugust 28, 2013

This might be a dumb question. About 50 years ago we had a white cling peach. We could pick it off the tress and peel it with our fingernails. The skin just came right off. It wasn't a large peach; but, it was the absolute best tasting. Does anyone have any knowledge of what this peach might have been. I would love to have one of these trees.

Some old heirlooms were white cling. I know Indian Free and Old Mixon were developed into freestones from white clings.
