Next up on the peaches to review, are a member of the Stellar family of peaches – the Glowing Star. Any peach with the name “star” in it’s name is a part of the Stellar family. Each member of the family ripens at a different time, so a farmer can plant several members of the family and have peaches last throughout the season. The Glowing Star peach comes near the end of the Stellar family, ripening 27 days after Red Haven.
My Experience with this Peach (Rating Scale 1-10)
Peach Flavor: 7
Overall Feeling: This was a pretty good peach. It had a nice peach flavor with a nice balance of acidity and sweetness. It wasn’t the juicy peaches I had this year, but still a decent amount of juice. These peaches do not brown when you cut them and since they are freestone, they make great peaches to use in canning.
