Peach cobbler, peach pie, juicy fresh peaches right off the tree—these are some of the things you and your family will look forward to every summer when you grow a Redhaven Peach Tree in your yard. If you can possibly hold off on eating them all fresh, this variety is also good for canning and freezing. Your Redhaven Peach Tree will not only deliver tasty treats in summer, but it will be a feast for the eyes throughout the year as well. In early spring, Redhaven will be the darling of your landscape when its pretty pink Peach blossoms unfurl, and in the fall, it will draw oohs and ahhs when the foliage turns luminous yellow.
Redhaven is a sweet, juicy, red-flushed peach that was developed by master fruit breeder Dr. Stanley Johnston at the Michigan State University Experiment Station in South Haven in 1940. This classic all-purpose peach still ranks near the very top of peach varieties grown commercially, and Redhaven is often the same peach you’ll find at the supermarket. With your own tree, however, you won’t have to buy peaches rock-hard from the store and let them soften to a so-so flavor. Instead, you’ll enjoy fruits that have had a chance to develop their maximum concentration of natural sugars by ripening on the tree. You’ll also have total control over what pesticides are sprayed—or not—on your tree.
Tired of the kids asking what there is to snack on? Peaches are nutritional powerhouses, and a Redhaven Peach Tree outside your door will put wholesome sweet treats just a few steps away. Low-calorie peaches deliver at least ten vitamins, such as vitamins A, C, and E, as well as several minerals such as potassium. They are also a delicious source of antioxidants—scientists are still discovering the numerous health benefits of these powerful, all-natural plant chemicals.
How to Grow
The Redhaven Peach Tree prefers a warm, sunny site in a location with good air circulation. The soil must drain freely, as Peach Trees won’t tolerate soggy soil; however, don’t let your tree get too dry, especially during its critical establishment phase. Using the Elements™ Watering System will ensure the right amount of moisture reaches your tree’s roots. Redhaven is self-pollinating, so it will set fruit all by itself, though yields will be heavier if a different variety of Peach Tree blooms nearby. Peaches can be a bit challenging for novice growers in some parts of the country due to local pest and disease issues. These obstacles can be overcome with a little know-how, and our talented growers are here to answer any questions that might arise. Drop them a line anytime at email@example.com.
Questions & Answers
What type of rootstock are your Peaches grafted onto?
Thank you for your question! Bower & Branch Peach Trees are grafted onto Prunus Americana - Bailey strain, which is American Plum. Our Growers chose this under stock to avoid the incompatibility issues of other Russian rootstock strains.
This is a very hardy rootstock with an excellent track record. In University testing, research test plots in various locations - including Massachusetts, California and Pennsylvania - the Bailey rootstock proved to be one of the best performing rootstocks!
