    My great friend Al was telling me that he has just acquired a much-coveted peach tree that was developed just down the highway from us. As he says, "In case you don't know, the Nanaimo peach was developed here but somehow went to the US where it is now trademarked and banned from Canadian imports. It is the ONLY peach that does not get peach leaf curl and is highly sought after." !!!!!

    From the page linked to:

    Please note that our leaf curl resistant varieties are not immune to the disease.

    Hmmm. So - only resistant, not immune. My friend will be disappointed (perhaps skeptical) but, knowing him, optimistic.

    In addition to various commercial interests promoting it there are at least a couple of anecdotal testimonials that come up when doing a web search.
