"Preeminent among white-fleshed, freestone peaches for fruits of high quality and handsome appearance, which are further distinguished by a distinct and delicious flavor - a sort of scented sweetness" wrote Hedrick in 1922.  Skin white with many red and rose-pink highlights, flesh pink and white, delicate, red surrounding the pit, exceptionally juicy and rather low in acid.  Arose in the orchard of a Dr. Marvin in Morristown, New Jersey, 1851.  An outstanding peach for the first half of August, before White Hale and Belle of Georgia.  Thin well because very productive, has not missed a season with us.  Early August.  750 hours.  On Lovell.
