Years ago I grew one of these from seed. It was stunning. The only reason and a good one from my point of view was the time needed for it to reach flowering, sometime in August. I should have tried wintering over cuttings and see if that might have been quicker. Note that I am guessing that this Peach is the same one I grew. Mine of larger in stature than the dwarf stuff and new cultivars of the dwarf stuff seem arrive hourly.
