From the founding of Jamestown to the time of Washington and Jefferson, every plantation owner made cider, drank cider, and bragged about his cider.
George IV is a white freestone peach with greenish white skin and a pinkish blush. Melting, juicy aromatic, richly flavored flesh. One of the three best white-fleshed peaches of all time. Downing exclaimed, "remarkable rich luscious flavor…No garden should be without it." Small, but when well thinned, the fruit is of good size with attractive gold and brownish red markings. Juicy, aromatic white flesh is richly flavored. One of America's oldest peaches, first obtained from a Mr. Gill in New York City in 1820.
