Howdy,

Could anyone advise on the approximate time of year a Sam Houston peach might be ready to harvest about 15-miles east of Austin, TX.

Its mid-July and still not ripe so I am curious what I did wrong.
Many times the product label is put on the wrong plant, either at the growers or by some shopper at the store. So, it probably isn't a Sam Houston as ripening dates are determined primarily by genetics and secondarily by weather. Three weeks is a long time in peach parlance. You didn't do anything wrong. If I were to guess I would say that the variety is Jersey Queen, an Elberta type peach.
