Snow Giant Peach on BY520-9. Nematode Resistant Peach/nectarine (Spring 2024)


A huge white peach for a late-season treat.

This is a vigorous, productive, upright tree with moderate resistance to bacterial spot. The bloom is midseason and showy. This variety is self-fertile and a second variety is not required as a pollenizer.

These late-season, white fleshed peaches are huge, at around 3-3/4" diameter. The flesh is sweet and flavorful, and the fruit is firm enough to make Snow Giant suitable for commercial production. The fruit will store well in regular refrigeration for up to three weeks. 

Snow Giant is a cross of two breeding selections. Its parentage includes May Grand nectarine, O'Henry peach, Royal Gold peach, and Sam Houston peach.
