Roddenberry Peach – Local Heirloom Peach!
Roddenberry is a white-fleshed, low acid peach. This one comes true from seed. Passed around through the North Florida area for over a 100 years. This local heirloom peach may get attacked by borers, but will come grow back from the roots (we also think it is less likely to be attacked than others, but we don’t have enough data on it yet). This aromatic and flavorful beauty is famous locally and is a winner! Our seed was gathered from Sopchoppy Florida and flowers early, so we estimate about 450-550 chill hours. You might experiment with this one as far south as Gainesville. Fruit ripens June. Self-pollinating. Found in Zone 8B.
