| Garden Peach
90 days, indeterminate — Also known as 'Yellow Peach', this heirloom tomato variety produces fruit that weighs from one to three ounces and have a fuzzy skin, like a peach. The fruits store well and have a good, mild flavor.
In her book entitled, "The Heirloom Tomato," Amy Goldman places the origin of 'Garden Peach' with plant breeder Elbert S. Carman, owner and editor of The Rural New-Yorker magazine. It was subsequently released by various seed companies and under various names — 'White Peach' by Hallock & Son's (1890), 'New Garden Peach' (1893) and in 'New Yellow Peach' by A. W. Livingston (1894).
By 1902, over a dozen other seed companies listed 'Yellow Peach' in their catalogs. Synonyms and strains include 'Chiswick Peach', 'Wapsipinicon Peach', 'White Peach', 'Yellow Peach', and 'Garden Peach'. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
