About Stamp

Three fresh designs will be issued on July 31, 1995, creating the fourth in Canada Post Corporation's definitive stamp series featuring Canadian fruit trees. The fruit-belt regions of Canada have always been considered ideal for growing delicious fresh produce. The Niagara valley in Ontario or the Okanagan in British Columbia are two popular examples. This year's unique harvest of apples, peaches, and nuts reveal the variety and sturdy result of Canadian farm ingenuity. Peaches are picked earlier in the season, from mid July to mid September. During the early 20th century, the Elberta peach was North America's most important and widely planted variety of peach. In 1870, this hybrid of the Chinese Cling and possibly Early Crawford species evolved on the farm of a Mr. Rumph in Marshallville, Georgia. He named it "Elberta" in honour of his wife, Clara Elberta. The American Pomological Society documented this fruit in 1889. Firm and resistant to infestation, the hearty Elberta produced a free-stone fruit that was not only rich and juicy but also strong enough to withstand the rigours of shipping. No longer cultivated, this popular canning peach has served as a primary source of rootstock and contributed widely to breeding programs responsible for developing today's popular varieties.
