About the Veteran Peach:

Veteran (late August). Because of its reliable productivity, this variety has become the principal peach of western Oregon. The fruit are medium to large and round-oblate (flattened on the end). The skin is yellow with very little red coloring; the flesh is yellow, soft, and semi-freestone to freestone. Fruit peel easily without scalding and have a rich flavor when canned, but fresh eating quality is only fair. Fruit are soft when ripe and show bruises easily, so they do not hold up well in markets. The tree is vigorous and highly productive. This variety is most suitable for U-pick operations and home gardens.
