* Lovell Peach seed is used primarily as a root-stock for grafting desired scion wood onto. The resulting trees are more tolerant of wet soils, more cold hardy, and disease resistant.
Prunus persica Lovell (Peach, Lovell Peach) is a deciduous tree that is endemic to Northwest China. It produces delicious, luscious fruits with a variety of features, the most common of which being peaches and nectarines. Prunus persica may reach a height and width of 23 feet. The leaves are pinnately veined, lanceolate, long, and wide. The flowers appear before the leaves in early spring; they are solitary or paired, 2.5–3 cm in diameter, pink, and have five petals. In various varieties, the fruit has yellow or white meat, a delicate fragrance, and a velvety or smooth (nectarines) skin. Some cultivars' flesh is fragile and easily damaged, although some commercial types' flesh is very solid, especially when young.
