Re: [nafex] Doughnut peach

Betty:  The doughnut peach also goes by the name "Saturn".  It may have other
names as well.  I know that it is commercially available as nursery stock, but
I just don't recall at the moment where I have seen it.  It occasionally
appears at our local produce markets here in N. Virginia.  I have not tried it,
but my daughter has, and she was very complimentary of its flavor.  I'm sure
you will hear more about it from PNW Nafexers, since I believe it is more
common out there.  Rgds, Don Yellman, Great Falls, VA
