Evaluation

PATTY™ is the best, early ripening, white-fleshed peach variety at the moment. The excellent fruit qualities include the very smooth skin, almost 100 % staining of the fruits as well as a pronounced peach aroma. A timely harvest is essential because the fruits tend to rupture when fully ripe. When selecting a site take into account the very early flowering and medium sensitivity to frost damage of the wood during the juvenile phase.
