Lee Spencer, Pa Grower

Paul Friday's Flamin' Fury peach varieties have made a major impact in the US peach industry including the Middle Atlantic States. Many varieties including PF Lucky 13 are widely planted in New Jersey with PF 24-007 being the most important because of it's large size. Most major fruit tree nurseries in the US carry his varieties. This wide acceptance and confidence is a living testimony to Paul' 50 years experience as a grower, marketer and his keen power of observation as a breeder and and evaluator of peach varieties.”

I am on Paul's farm and in his test orchards several times per week during the growing season. I have seen, handled and tasted all of his varieties and consider them all to be top of the line.  They are all large for their season, very colorful and hang a long time for additional size and color. They have excellent flavor, juice and are very resistant to bac spot. I have been very impressed with Paul's peach breeding program and his high quality peaches."
