Peach not ripe yet

I have what I have always thought was RedHaven and this is the first year to get a good crop. It is the only fruit that I will have this year and it's loaded with nice fruit.

I keep hearing that fruit is ripening early this year, however this fruit is still quite hard and growing larger.

I just thought that I would see if anyones peaches are already ripening around Z5 (northeast Indiana)

I am really happy how large they are getting. I have a couple near baseball size!

I have two off of a seedling peach and none have any color at all yet. Ripe in September?

Hi, my 'Elberta's' are just a bit smaller than your peaches, with not much 'red' color (a bit of pink) and are hard as a rock. I don't see them being ready for at least three weeks. Mrs. G

RE: Peach not ripe yet

So why did you think it was a Redhaven? My guess is it's something else.

RE: Peach not ripe yet

I only Said Redhaven because I bought it at Lowes about 4 years ago and that is what I remember. It could be that I do not remember or that it was mislabeled.
