John Fanick Peach History

Written by 

John Fanick Peach


Mr. Eddie Fanick introduced many shade and ornamental trees and a few fruit varieties.  His son John managed their large retail nursery with many acres of trees being tested in their research orchard.  A fruit tree from a seedling of La Feliciana near the nursery front door had high quality fruit.

John's sons wanted to introduce the tree to their San Antonio customers and named it after their father John Fanick.  The original bud wood was supplied in August 2000.  The L. E. Cooke Co. has grown this selection for their Fanick Garden Center where they sell well over 100 each year.  This named variety surely enhances the Fanick's name.

John FanickTM Peach is large, freestone, yellow flesh fruit with excellent flavor.  The skin has an 80% red blush.  The tree's spring bloom is attractive and adds a dual season as a flowering tree.  The tree produces abundant crops with ripening mid to late July.  An L. E. Cooke Co. introduction to the trade.
