Today we are going to take a look at another member of the “Haven” series of peaches – the Glo Haven. I wasn’t able to find anything on the history and background of the Glo Haven. The only thing I can tell you is that it is a true freestone peach and they ripen about 17 days after it’s “sibling” the Red Haven. Glo Haven is always free stone while years you will find a Red Haven that still clings to the pit a little. Since it’s resembles the Red Haven in appearance, I have heard farmers trying to pass these off as Red Havens. If you find a place selling Red Havens 2 1/2 to 3 weeks after you first saw Red Havens, there is a chance they may actually be Glo Havens.
My Experience with this Peach (Rating Scale 1-10)
Peach Flavor: 4
Overall Feeling: I wasn’t a big fan of this peach. It is known for it’s milder flavor and that’s not a good thing in my book. It didn’t have a strong enough peach flavor to go along with the acidity. If it doesn’t pack a good flavor, then it won’t get a good review. I think there are better peaches out there available at the same time as the Glo Haven.
