Red Haven Peach is a must have for any backyard orchard. It has replaced Elberta as the standard to compare all peaches to. When Grandpa first saw Redhaven, he couldn't wait to test it, and found that it met and surpassed all his expectations at the time. Redhaven ripens early in the season and is usually freestone, although some years it can be a little 'clingy'. It has a wonderful red color over a yellow background. The flesh is yellow with a little red near the pit. It is juicy, sweet, and very tasty. The tree is one of the more hardy varieties, very productive, and has good resistance to bacteria spot. Can be used for all purposes.
This is an early ripening version of the world famous peach. It's rich, sweet, yellow flesh and golden yellow blushed red skin make the peach the best there is. This large peach ripens in early July, and requires 750 chill hours. The peach is the most adaptable of all fruit trees for home gardens. When planting, they should be spaced to allow a spread of 20 to 25 feet. At 3 or 4 years of age they begin to bear large crops and reach peak productivity at 8 to 12 years. Peaches need clear, hot weather during their growing season and require well-drained soil as well as a regular fertilizing program. They also require heavier pruning than any other fruit trees to maintain size and encourage new growth. Most peach varieties are self fertile, not requiring a second tree. Cannot tolerate extreme winter cold or late frost. Peach leaf curl, brown rot, peach scab and peach tree borer can be a problem.
