Peaches in Newfoundland?

That's right, there is a peach tree growing and producing fruit in Steady Brook, Newfoundland. My dear friend, Janet Manuel planted the tree about fifteen years ago. She tells me that it just started to produce fruit three years ago, with this year being a bumper crop. I actually picked a peach right off the tree and when I bit into the fruit it was sweet and juicy, just as you would expect a peach to be. Janet has been busy making peach chutney, peach marmalade and peach preserves. Luckily for me she is generous. Thanks Janet!
