Crimson Lady Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Crimson Lady is the first peach variety off the tree at Frog Hollow. It has a firm texture that is more springy than meltingly juicy. It’s sweet with little acid making it a real favorite with the kids. The Crimson Ladies are one of our favorite peaches to dry. Look for them in another month in the add-ons section to taste how uniquely chewy and delicious they are in their dried form.
