History and description of Irish Peach

Irish Peach apple is believed to have arisen in Sligo, Ireland. Sent to the London Horticultural Society the nurseryman John Robertson of Kilkenny 1819. Popular in Victorian and Edwardian England when it was grown commercially in Kent.

Medium sized, round to round-conical fruit. Brownish red flush over a greenish yellow skin. Crisp, juicy, pale cream flesh. Good balance of sugar and acidity. Excellent flavour for a summer apple. Does not keep and best eaten from the tree. Vigorous tip bearing tree. Good cropper.
