Veteran peach is a “old-timer” well known for its extreme cold hardiness even in the chilly Midwest areas where peaches are hard to grow. It is an excellent canner as well as an excellent tasting fresh eating peach. Its is a medium large golden yellow fruit with hardly any red. It ripens in late mid-season in late August. It’s not much to look at but is a good one for the backyard fruit grower who wants to try growing peaches in a cold area.
