I had purchased one, but sold the house where I had planted it. The new owner was thrilled to have the tree. It produced beautiful fruit.

how do you treat peach borers?

What is semi-freestone?
Terry on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have about 120 peach trees. Freestone peaches allow you to completely
remove the pit by cutting around the peach. Twist the two halves and remove
the pit from one of the halves. Semi-freestone are not as easy. The peach does tends to stick to some of the pit, but it will come out if you dig it out. Cling-stone means you cannot remove the pit freely. The peach is grown attached to the pit. Cling-stone peaches usually ripen early season. Then semi-freestone and then freestone peaches. Generally.
Anyone have a good method for keeping squirrels from getting all the peaches?
Jeffrey C on Jun 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not knowing how old/large your tree is, you can fence it or net it. This works quite well and also keeps the birds and deer out of the fruit: // Put this over the tree about 3 weeks before the peaches start to ripen.
Is this a freestone peach?
Vicki on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is considered a semi-freestone variety.
How much yield (in bushels) will I get from a mature 4th of July Peach tree?
John B on Dec 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Of course, much depends upon the weather conditions, soil fertility, sunlight and food/water the tree receives, but here are some guidelines, depend: Dwarf: 1???3 bushels; Standard: 3???6 bushels. The Supreme sizes of our dwarf and standard tree will produce the same amount, but will establish stronger root systems sooner than the smaller-caliper trees.

Great Peach !!!!
It's July 28 here in North West Michigan. Just picked my 4th of July Peaches. Very early for this far north. 2nd year planted and got a nice crop of quality fruit. Plan to order more for spring planting.

Best Tasting Peaches
I planted 4 of the 4th of July peach trees in 2010 along with RedHaven, Reliance, Elberta and Starking Delicious peaches from Stark Bros. The 4th of July peaches definitely come ripe first and are the best tasting peaches of them all! The fruit needs to be thinned as the tree produces far too many peaches that end up being small in size compared to other varieties. People that I have shared them with told me they were the best tasting peaches they have ever had. I wish the trees grew as fast and as large as the Red Haven, but these trees are a great value to me to have early fruit and fantastic tasting fruit that is so sweet you can smell it 100 feet away.

Peaches in 2nd year!
We planted a 4th of July peach tree (along with 2 other varieties) 2 years ago, and this summer it is producing peaches! It's only June now, but hopefully these will turn into large, delicious fruit by July 4.

4th of July Peach
This tree has not only survived a solid winter in Maine, it looks thrilled to have done so. I'm looking forward to the day it starts producing!

4th of July Peach
we had a 4th of July peach tree in zone 6. It bore fruit that ripened right around the 4th of July. The fruit was nicely sized and delicious. Too bad I didn't know how to control peach tree borers until too late for that tree. We lost it and several other stone fruit trees. Rest assured I will do my level best to control the pests here in our newest location.

It is my first tree to fruit. I have 5 peaches and I'm very proud I look at them everyday.

Going Gangbusters!
This tree has done very well, we even had one peach that set on and even though it was no bigger than a ping pong ball, my husband and I cut it in half and enjoyed our first crop....

First year and it looks great!
No peaches yet obviously, but the tree has branched out uniformly with plenty of leaves.

4th of July Peace is a Pip!
The 4th of July peach has grown beautifully and I'm hoping to be able to taste some delicious looking peaches pretty soon. It seems to have grown and be
free of insect issues for the last year, a beautiful shaped tree! Thanks Stark Bros.Dr. R.S.

everything as expected
2- 4th of July peach trees were planted in the fall of 2016. Both are doing well, but of course I haven't sampled any fruit yet. Would, and have, recommended Stark Bros. fruit trees.
