Three Star Daily News
A fine low-chill peach bred in the 1940s by Walter Lammerts at Descanso Gardens, La Canada, a project commissioned by Manchester Boddy, then publisher of the Los Angeles Daily News ... hence the unusual name. One of four peach varieties resulting from the project. Fruit large, yellow with some red blush. Flesh freestone, yellow, juicy, good sugar:acid balance - 'Rio Oso Gem' appears on both sides of its parentage. Incidentally a fine garden ornamental, flowers double and very showy. One of the few late season peaches for low-chill areas. Patent 1092. Late July. On Nemaguard.
