Great news out of Georgia! Coming soon to a market near you this summer: the Gulfprince peach. This new peach will tree ripen for three or four days longer than other peaches, and as a result it will be sweeter, juicier, and plumper than other peaches out there.
The Gulfprince is a hardy fellow, slow to soften and therefore slow to bruise. Sizing in at around two and half inches in diameter, the Gulfprince is just the right size for a summer treat.
