Hello, Red Baron!

My “no-name” peach no longer has to deal with a self-identity crisis.  Last night I realized that I could figure out what my mysterious peach was with a little search engine insight and know-how.  Channeling Sherlock, I have unlocked the mystery, hinging on none other than it’s show-stopping blooms.  Thinking about it’s freestone pit, yellow flesh, low chilling hour requirement and July ripening, I was almost certain that I’d had a Mid Pride peach all these years (well, since 2007).  Then I googled Mid Pride’s spring flowers and I heard a big “uuhhh-mmmmmm” like a losing contestant on the Price is Right.  It’s flowers are pale pink and single layer.  The only other peach meeting all the other above requirements with a double red flower was Red Baron.
