Flat Peach of China (China Peach; Java Peach).— Fruit small, so much depressed at both ends as to form a deep hollow on each; in the top one is set a broad, rough, and five-angled eye. Skin pale yellowish-green, mottled with red next the sun. Flesh pale yellow, free, red at the stone, sweet, juicy, and noyeau flavoured; forces well in pots. Middle and end of September. Flowers large. Glands kidney-shaped.
I believe this peach does not now exist in this country. all the trees having been killed by the severe frost of 1838.
