Arctic Supreme White Peach
A white-fleshed peach from the finest stone fruit breeders in the United States. Arctic Supreme is as much eye candy as it is tongue candy with its beautiful cream colored skin blushed white and a strikingly white firm flesh. The flavor is sweet as can be with a nice tang to round it all out. Leave them on the counter for a few days after picking and they’ll become even sweeter!
