It feels and smells like a peach but is smaller and yellow and is in less like a tree and more like a bush. Any ideas? It might be obvious, I don't know.

Even Peach trees have to start small...some grow larger into trees ..whilst others are genetically bred to always stay small.

Some peaches have white flesh, others peach coloured flesh.

Thanks for the information. I am in the peach state, so I guess that makes sense :LOL:;)

All I know about peaches is what I see at the grocery store. They smell real good. Will the be edible. I'm thinking about digging it up and giving it a better home as it's burried in other trees and vines.

I can't say anything about that fruit but definitely it looks peach to me. All I can think of now is the apricot although it is far different. By the way, we don't have those fruits here although I have eaten fresh peaches and nectarine because we buy that once in a while in the supermarket that sells imported fruits. I hope that fruit will be identified for our knowledge.

It does look like a Georgia Peach to me. I hope you are able to give it a better home so that it can grow and produce lots of sweet peaches.

It does look like a different variety of peaches. Have you cut it up and look or taste it yet? Here at our local market, they sell varieties of peaches, but I only bought the deep pink or orange one.

@Corzhens that's interesting. What climate do you live in? from what I have read in some of your other post there are lost of exotic plants around.

@Pat I will have to check with our landlord, but it's being overrun with vines and other plants. I want to tree the poor thing.

Its fuzzy like a peach. I did cut into one, it's flesh was pale. It smelled really good. Have yet to taste it.

We live in a tropical country where mangoes are common. Exotic fruits here are actually common when I was young. It just happened that imported fruits like your plum and peaches are now arriving here in their fresh form so those native fruits of yore have now become exotic. Worse, the people are now buying imported fruits and have seemed to have forgotten the native fruits.
