Very hardy and of Canadian origin, Veteran is perhaps the most cold-hardy peach we offer. The freestone fruit is large with yellow flesh and an easy-to-peel skin. This variety is resistant to peach-leaf curl. Slightly mealy flesh with excellent flavour, makes a great pie! This is the best preforming peach in our test orchard.

To Order for Spring 2021: orders for spring shipping or pick-up can be placed as early as December. If you wish to reserve anything before that time or have any questions, please email us: email@example.com. We sell only apples and pears bareroot in the fall, as they are most winter hardy. Everything else (as well as apple and pear) is available in spring.
