N.J. 260 cv. At last, here’s a late-ripening, freestone peach whose flavor matches the best of the mid-season ripeners. This is a firm, medium-to-large peach, as juicy as you could ever want. This cold-hardy tree is also resistant to bacterial leaf spot, so it will produce dependably for you for years and years. We sell thousands of Encore trees to orchardists every year. That’s because they know this tree will produce long after many ther varieties have ended. Harvest early September in Zone 6.
