Peach of Montreal Apple

Late Summer. Thought to be of French or Russian origin, before 1876. Also called Peach or Montreal Peach. Known as Pomme Pêche in Montréal.

All-purpose fruit ripens just after Duchess in colder districts. Excellent in sauce and nearly as good as Gravenstein in a pie. Develops from subacid to a richer and mellower flavor as the season progresses.

Conical rich-yellow fruit often with a bright peach-like orange-red cheek. We love the comment Vic Caron of New Hampshire made years ago: “I think they are aptly named, the Peach is a peach.”

Still found in central and western Maine, across northern Vermont and New Hampshire, and into Québec. Introduced to us by Josh Karp of Cate Hill Orchard in Craftsbury Common, VT. Blooms midseason. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
