Brighton and Eden-- two new peach varieties
New York State, on the northern edge of the peach growing area, needs improved varieties of peaches. The best commercial varieties, presently available, are too subject to injury by low winter temperatures to bear full crops every year in most of the fruit growing areas of the State. For this reason, the primary objective of the peach breeding program at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station is increased resistance to low winter temperatures; that is, increased hardiness.
