is Rio Grande a good Peach?
« on: June 28, 2022, 10:17:41 PM »
these are just ripening for us and they have been amazing- so juicy and sweet only trouble is keeping the birds off em

I am considering putting in another tree and doing some multigrafting

are peaches just much better ripened one the tree? is Del Rio a good cultivar?

what other varities would people recommend

Not finding any information on Del Rio.  Dave Wilson Nursery in CA doesn't carry it, and they have the most extensive and comprehensive catalog of any wholesale nursery.  Do you mean Rio Oso Gem, which is an excellent peach?

I must admit I have lost the variety tag and after being confident that was the name hit google and also couldn't find any information about it-

I'm pretty sure this is not rio oso as they are a red fleshed peach, I am now thinking it was actually a rio grande tree based on pictures of the fruit-

sorry for the bad post

A few of the fruits-


The flesh-
