Peach Tree

Hi..I planted a peach tree (Tropic Snow) a few years ago. Makes you wonder why I would plant a tree called Tropic Snow when It's 114 degrees out. It's suppose to be LowChill, 225 hrs. I get fruit, but the peaches never get bigger then a walnut. And most of them burn up before they rippen. What a surprise!!....We have many kinds of peach trees here in the nurserys..Can someboby that lives here recommend my next peach tree..Thanks Carol
