    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.

    My dad who has been in agriculture all his life is now retired and able to grow things for fun! He wants so badly to try growing a Nanaimo peach but found out that the licensing is now with someone in the states and it’s virtually impossible to get one. It’s his birthday on April 17th, and I have been searching high and low for someone with a Nanaimo peach in the lower mainland area who has one, and who would allow me to pay to take cuttings that my dad can propagate (he is great at this). Any chance your friend Al is in this area and would be willing to help me make this drea come true for my dad!?
