These peach trees [Prunus persica (Bastch) L.] originated in the Stone Fruit Breeding Program at the Department of Horticultural Sciences at Texas A&M University, located in College Station, TX. The seed parent of three of these (TXW1C4, TXW1490-1, and TXW1491-1) was ‘TropicBeauty’, a nonpatented variety released by the University of Florida in cooperation with Texas A&M University in 1988 (Rouse and Sherman, 1989). This peach was selfed to produce a population of 500 seedlings, which were planted in a high-density fruiting nursery at the Texas A&M University Citrus Center in Weslaco, TX. The fourth selection, TXW1193-1, is from unknown parentage and was grown in the same high-density fruiting orchard. These seedlings were selected for good productivity, good fruit size, yellow ground color, round shape, high red overcolor, and excellent firmness. They were propagated asexually by budding and have been evaluated in Texas (Weslaco), California (Fowler), Florida (Immokalee), Mexico (Sonora), and Thailand (Angkhang).
