Introduced to America in 1968, 'Canadian Harmony' Peach is an early to midseason ripener that matures about 16 days after 'Red Haven'. This selection is a strong producer of large freestone fruit with excellent shelf life and a taste that is sweet but with a bit of acidity to balance it out. This hint of acidity makes it great Peach for canning, preserving or for pies. While it might not be the prettiest Peach, what 'Canadian Harmony' lacks in the way of magazine cover appeal, it certainly makes up for in flavor. Once you take a bite of out of this juicy, delicious fruit straight off the tree, taste, not beauty, will be foremost in your mind! Even better than its outstanding taste, 'Canadian Harmony' is one of the hardiest Peaches available making it perfect for growing in those northern areas where Peaches are sought after but rarely grow well. 'Canadian Harmony ' is self fruitful making it perfect for edible gardeners with limited space resources.
