Unlike those of our great country, the nurserymen of France knew some dozens of blood peaches within their nation's borders. Variously named but all known as Sanguignes, all were derived from the patriarch 'Peche de Vigne' (which see), had dark red flesh and characteristic raspberry flavored juice, ripened late in season and, while good as dessert fruits, were the greatest of the peaches for culinary use. This is the latest of the late blood peaches, a gray purple on outside because of high fuzz, but beet red throughout the interior. A must for the orchard in peach climates. End August. 650 hours. On Lovell.
