Some mouth watering Peaches soon to eat

Some mouth watering Peaches that will be ready soon to eat. These are grown in an open field, and not up against a south facing wall. They have no protection from the bitter winds and driving rain and scorching sun. We are starting to cross pollinate to get a more late flowering peach. Its not’s so much the winter hardiness, its the ability for the flowers to withstand a frost or the small fruitlets to withstand the cold without falling off. The winter hardiness is governed more by the rootstock.
