Rio Oso Gem peach
The Rio Oso Gem peach was developed in Rio Oso, California, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The peach is large and round with yellow skin that has a bright red blush. The flesh is firm, and the meat has a coarser texture than other peaches. It is highly aromatic and juicy with a good tart finish. The Rio Oso Gem is difficult to grow, as it bruises easily and drops from the tree as soon as it ripens. Consequently, growing this peach is only feasible for small growers who can keep an eye on every tree and sell to a local market.
