Crop: Irish Peach
Lost most of the small crop to wasps. I picked one in the last week in July, and it ripened within a few days. This variety has a very small window of use, but is very early, just about ready in July. Acid-sweet, very appley, slightly floury texture but not unpleasantly so at peak of ripeness. Skin on one a little tough, but not inedibly so. Fruit size a little small, but the tree is still little more than a maiden.
