Size & Spacing

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these trees 12 - 15' apart to ensure room for growth.

In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!

I know little about peach trees. I picked it due to zone, reviews, and non cling seed.

The description sounds like this is a yummy peach that will grow in our zone.
Theresa N on Mar 14, 2020
New variety for me, but the ripening time fits a gap between my other trees. Chilling hours should be adequate for my area.

I was looking for a dwarf, self-polinating tree
Anna C on Mar 31, 2019
I planted one of these trees last year and this year had a few peaches on it. The peaches that we got were perfect in size, shape, color and taste. I was pleasantly surprised that the fruit was unblemished and looked as if I bought it from a professional grower. I only buy Stark Bro's trees and have always been rewarded with great trees.

What causes a peach fruit to split before getting ripe?

BEST ANSWER: Fruit split is almost always caused by too much water/rain. The best you can do is hope for things to dry out.

Cresthaven peach tree
The first year my crest haven tree did not produce any peaches. The second year it produced about fourtyfive peaches. These peaches were sweet and juicy. I would recommend this peach tree to anyone.
