Reviews were good for our technically zone 5 area. One review listed as zone 4-5 and that they have had RedHavens for 30 years. We have been looking for a good peach that will survive here for a long time. Bonus: late bloom (avoiding late frost), freestone.
C and C J on Apr 11, 2016
Have several of these trees. The peaches are wonderful!
MICHAEL R on Apr 10, 2016

I choose this because it is a good peach for my area , free stone type & other items I have ordered from stark have done very well . I am very pleased with the plants & the growth of them that I have gotten from stark & will order from them again for any of my plants that I may need in the future .

Kim G on Mar 27, 2016
I have grown this variety in the past. The fruits were large, sweet, freestone and very productive. I feel this is the best of the Haven type peaches and fairly winter hardy for north central Illinois.

When it blooms how long do u wait to spray for bugs?
J S on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not spray any insecticides until petal fall. I don't want to take a chance of hurting any pollinators when there may be a "late blossom" on the tree. You may want to see if there are any organic sprays that you can safety use during the bloom period.
Will this fruit within the first year?
Linda F on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can find the years-to-bear information in the Characteristics section, near the top of the page, underneath the description. The years-to-bear information is also summarized for all our fruit & nut bearing products in these 3 articles: | |
When should I expect my new peach tree to leaf-out after planting in the spring (zone 6)?
Hannah B on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We planted our peach tree in August in zone 6 and it wintered over well and started getting leaves in March of following year.. if you planted in spring I would think you would have leaves within a couple months of planting. Give plenty of water once chance of freeze has past.
My peach tree is starting it's 2nd year here and has blooms. Should I pick the blooms off?
Mary M on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We never do.

Reliable Producer
We have had Red Haven peach trees for over 30 years. It is the most reliable of all varieties for our zone 4-5. Great peach for canning and fresh eating.

very fine choice
I would recommend not planting close to pine trees as they seem to have an adverse effect on peaches in close proximity.

Red Haven Peach Tree
I ordered one Red Haven Peach Tree from you last spring. I was very nice size. It now has many blooms on it. I had to buy the second one this spring to put next to it. Hopefully a late frost won't hurt the blooms. Looking forward to a nice crop for many years to come. Thank You, John in Illinois.

Best overall peach
Bought the Redhaven from Stark Bros in 2003. In 2008 it set so much fruit I had to thin it out. Between the tree dropping excess fruit, my thinning, and the fruit left on the tree, I counted fruit set over 600! Here in NE PA it ripens the first week in August. Great flavor, average size, freestone--excellent all around.

Redhaven peach
Plant stock arrived in good condition and planted as directed fall 2015. Stock appears to have survived this winter and hope it comes out of dormancy in great shape.

Redhaven Peach
I received the Redhaven Peach tree last October, just in time for fall planting. A very healthy and robust tree, professionally pruned ready to plant. It wintered over very well and I see the buds are beginning to form/swell. I am looking forward to reap the reward of a bountiful harvest in due time. Thank you for your prompt service and delivery schedule. Again, a very nice, healthy tree.

Excellent peach trees
I received my 4 Redhaven peach trees at home on Saturday. They were well boxed and professionally pruned. These trees should last my lifetime. I can't say enough about Stark Brothers trees. Just fantastic ! I even received the tre -prep fertilizer the same time. Will order again. Thanks Stark Brothers!

Great Looking Peach Tree
Planted a dwarf redhaven peach two springs ago, and the tree took off growing immediately the first season. Had a few blossoms and two peaches last year. LOADED with blossoms this spring. The late cold weather may get my crop, but this tree is sprouting new growth again and looks fantastic.
April 11, 2016
I bought one last fall and it is full of blooms. I ordered another one this spring and put it in about 10 days ago and it is budding already. Excellent, good quality tree.
