Flat Peaches

Some time ago now Graham Ross did a segment on BHG about a flat peach. They are sometimes sold in the shops now as Donut Peaches. Many years ago my father had orchards of them but we always called them China Flats. Am unable to find anything on this site. Can you help please?

Flat or donut peaches often take more work to grow than regular varieties (more time thinning and harvesting because of their unique shape), but because many varieties of the flattened peaches have outstanding flavor, they can certainly be worth the extra effort. Rutgers Cooperative Extension has an excellent fact sheet on donut type peaches at
