Royal Zest Three – It’s got Zest!
Thank you, Texas A&M! Royal Zest is a new series of excellent peaches from the breeding program of Dr. David Byrne at Texas A&M. Royal Zest Three is a medium to large peach with an excellent “peachy” flavor – tangy and sweet! Its high quality, firm, yellow flesh is covered in red (60-95% of the skin!) making Royal Zest Three a beauty to behold, too. Semi-freestone. Ripens early to mid June. Self-pollinating. 550 chill hours. Zone 8A and 8B.
