Flamin' Fury® Peach Series
Varieties are listed in approximate order of ripening.
C&O Nursery is proud to offer this new series of peaches from the Paul Friday
Peach breeding program. All peaches in these series bear large red fruit, are bacterial
spot-resistant and very winter hardy.
All cultivars in this series have good flavor and shipping quality. All selections stay
hard for long periods of time after reaching 60%+ red color and can be harvested in three
pickings or less, as they continue to pick up color until they are 90% red.
The ripening dates of these peaches span the time period from three weeks before Redhaven
to way past the Fayette season.
C&O Nursery will be carrying 16 of the FLAMIN' FURY® peaches this spring:
PF 1, PF 5B, PF Early 8 Ball, PF 7, PF 8 Ball, PF 9A-007, PF Lucky 13, PF 15A,
