Our first peach of the season which has small size, but nicely balanced sweet and tart flavor.  It tends to be a bit clingy on the pit, but comes off the seed when fully ripe.  This peach has nice deep red color with yellow flesh.  This peach was developed by the Fruit Acres breeding program in Michigan and was released in the late 1990’s.  We first planted this peach when it was still named FA101 and we were looking for a full flavored, early peach.  All the peaches coming out of this series have “star” in the name.  Picks in mid-July.
