Saturn Gold® Peach

This item is out of stock.

Supplies are limited so make sure you don't miss out next time by having us automatically notify you when it becomes available again.

Description

A new mid-early peach with the Midas touch. Everything you love about Saturn peaches: the unique saucer-shape and very fine, sweet, mildly acidic taste — but the firm flesh of Saturn Gold® is yellow, with a blended blush, instead of white. The flavor is near-perfect in its balance of sweetness and acidity, and the medium-large fruit is stunning on the tree. Developed at the University of Arkansas, this variety is strong and healthy, showing good resistance to bacterial spot. Ripens in early July. Semi-freestone. Self-pollinating. USPPAF.

We had two white Saturn peaches in Albuquerque that were great, except they were white peaches. The golden Saturn promises to be outstanding, if we can avoid killing them in our new location.

What are pollinating partners?
Mirissa M on Jul 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Peaches are self pollinating and do not require a pollinator to bear fruit. However planting more than one variety will increase your crop yields.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
