THE peach canning industry in Western Australia at present has only a limited period of operation, coinciding with the harvest time of the major variety, Golden Queen.
New canning peach varieties tested at Stoneville Research Station could be used to extend the harvest period of canning peaches beyond that of the present standard variety, Golden Queen.
This would have obvious advantages for growers and a canning industry.
The South African variety Keimoes was the most promising canning peach tested. Tests on other varieties are continuing.
