As the peach season continues, the peaches seem to be getting bigger and bigger. I found some of the biggest peaches I have ever had at the Saline Farmer's Market, recently. The vendor said the variety was called Lawrence, which is a type of Loring peach. Flaming Fury peaches are similar in that there are over 20 types of Flaming Fury, all tasting pretty much the same. The Loring has been around for quite a while. It was first released to fruit growers in 1946. It was created in Missouri. The Loring is a mid-season variety that typically ripens 22 days after Red Havens.
My Experience with this Peach (Rating Scale 1-10)
Peach Flavor: 7
Overall Feeling: I really enjoyed this peach. It had a good peach flavor, with a nice balance of sweetness and acidity and it was quite juicy. These peaches are pretty large in size. They are the biggest I have reviewed this year. That size is good for canning since there is less work to do if you have larger peaches.
