Cold Hardy, Juicy Peach Resistant to Diseases and Insects Grown from Seed
Wisconsin is grown from seed using multigenerational selections derived from hardy seedling peaches that grow and produce in Zone 4. We only have a few trees producing at our farm yet of this highly desired cross of 'escaped orchard peaches' . Our small population of plants produce mostly yellow flesh. Fruits tend to be smaller up to 2 inches in size. At this point they have little insect problems at our farm in unsprayed conditions. The flavor is as good as the cultivated versions. For a seed to seedling version of a common cultivated fruit like the peach, it has taken us three generations of planting and observing the resultant seedlings. There just are plain no 'bad' seedlings in this group with inferior fruit.
