If you have been reading this site regularly you will know that there are several peach series such as the haven series (including Red Haven) and Flamin' Fury (all start with PF). Today we are going to look at a peach from the stellar series, called the Blushing Star. All Stellar peach have the name "star" in them. I reviewed the Coral Star peach earlier this month. Not all stellar peaches are the same. Especially not in this case as the Blushing Star is a white fleshed peach. One good thing about stellar peaches is that they do not brown when cut, so they make a great choice for canning. The Blushing Star ripens 20 days after Red Havens. It is completely freestone.
My Experience with this Peach (Rating Scale 1-10)
Peach Flavor: 7
Overall Feeling: This was one of the best white peaches I have had. My wife is not a big fan of white peaches, and she questioned whether this really was a white peach. It is more acidic than most white peaches with a stronger peach flavor. It's a medium sized peach, perfect size for eating. The peach also smells good, it has a floral scent to it.
