Red-fleshed "blood" peaches have been known to fruit growers for centuries.  One of the richest sources for red peaches is the Midi of France, where local red varieties are legion and unique selections have been maintained for a century or more by nurserymen.  This, the late blood peach, is latest and darkest of the dozens found in the Midi.  The raspberry flavor associated with the anthocyanin pigment is characteristic of the highest-colored blood peaches and very marked in this selection.  Beet-red under the skin, somewhat paler around the pit;  sugars and acids less noticeable than the raspberry flavor.  Mid September.  800 hours.  On Lovell.
