Fruit That We Grow

Peaches:
There are three different types of peaches….clingstone (CL), semi-freestone (SF) and freestone (FS). Clingstone – Peaches whose flesh cling to the pit …. early varieties that usually ripen in May. Semi-freestone peaches have flesh that will pull away from the pit with a little effort. Freestone peaches are peaches whose flesh easily separates from the pit.
