As the name suggests Amsden June is a very early-ripening peach, likely to be ready to eat in June or early July in the UK. It is a good choice for the warmer areas of the UK

The fruit size is a bit smaller than shop-bought imported peaches, but the flavour is good.

The white flesh falls away cleanly from the stone (freestone).

How to grow

Amsden June has some resistance to peach-leaf curl, but it is still a good idea to protect the tree from infection in late winter / early spring - covering the tree with a fleece is a good method
