A good white peach can be hard to find. Most supermarkets carry white flesh peaches that are even harder than the yellow ones they carry. This is why it's best to go to the source as I did when buying White Lady peaches from the Farm Boy produce stand on Hall Road in Utica, Michigan (in the Gander Mountain parking lot). These medium to large peaches are red on the outside with a creamy white undertone. The peach was developed by Zaiger's Genetics of Modesto, California in 1986. This peach should be available sometime between the end of July and mid-August depending on where you live.
My Experience with this Peach (Rating Scale 1-10)
Peach Flavor: 5
Overall Feeling: These ratings may not look liked I enjoyed the peach, but I think the balance of each thing still made for a good peach. As a typical white peach, this was low in acidity, although I thought it was a little bit higher than other white peaches I have had. The pit was easily removed, and the flesh had some red blush in it.
