Post A Fruitful Bounty
We went down to our farm today and harvested the peach tree which is heavily laden. I bought them home for eating and stewing.
This is just a few of them, by all accounts the tree has been relatively neglected, so it's surprising they are so healthy and bug free.

I stewed them very simply with just a touch of brown sugar added to the white sugar syrup.
Not really sure what type of peaches they are - if anyone has any ideas ?
Sweet firm yellow flesh, not easily peeled even when blanched, I left the skins on.

Plus a nice pick of passionfruit off the vine at home as well.

Considering I've had a very slack year vege wise I'm really chuffed with todays haul :) .

Hi Jayups, they are they are a type of Canning Peach but I would not know which variety. The Golden Queen and Taylor Queen would be ripe about now here in the Goulburn Valley... and they are the best to eat IMO. I have some peach trees growing on the roadside near my house and they are ripening now too. The fruit on one tree tastes much better than the others. I really must water that tree in the dry times :D

Neglect has certainly paid off then - they look beautiful and sweet.
