Frog Hollow’s Battle of the Peaches is back! Now picking are the classic O’Henry peaches, the underdog in this fight, and the Cal Red, the fan-favorite heavyweight. Order this 5 lb Pack duel box and sample both contenders in one shipment.
The beloved Cal Red Peach is in a class by itself and is the “Oh my God” peach! A relatively new variety and a California native, the Cal Red was bred by University of California botanist Claron O. Hesse in the mid-1960s. Aptly named for the Golden State, the Cal Red is a beautiful golden peach marked with a gentle, sun-kissed blush. This is Frog Hollow Farm’s best-selling variety. Some years the Cal Red has a harvest window as brief as two weeks, leaving a huge impression for a peach with such fleeting availability.
Farmer Al’s favorite peach to grill, the O’Henry Peach has the flavor, size, and crimson blush that makes for a truly memorable peach. It’s elegantly pointed shape slices to an attractive heart shape for a striking presentation. Their O’Henry harvest overlaps briefly—a few days to a week—with their harvest of the Cal Red leading to a matchup of two of their biggest varieties. At participating farmers markets, their battle of the Peaches taste-offs between these two varieties grows more and more popular each year.
The package includes 5 lbs of peaches (approximately 9-12 peaches per box).
