Regular price $28.00 Sale

A peach of Rio Oso Gem type, ripening three weeks ahead of Rio Oso.  Fruits somewhat smaller, the same rich orange flesh and red around the pit, pale yellow skin marked with red.  Less overwhelming in crop which requires less time thinning, and lacks the odd spurs and doubled fruits.  Flavor identical to Rio Oso Gem.  A probable seedling of it, arising in the Fowler Nurseries at Newcastle, California in 1954.  End July.  800 hours.  On Lovell.
