it is Disease-resistant to leaf spot?
julian b on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There isn't much data on any particular disease-resistance for this variety, so, if peach trees are known to have leaf spot issues in your area, you may need to have a copper-based spray handy with this variety and be sure that the planting site has ideal drainage and soil nutrients to help avoid overall stress in the tree.
My Fingerlakes Super Hardy Peach tree has not blossomed yet, 05/05. I live in zone 6A. The branches appear to be dead at the ends but some are still green. Is there any way to save this tree?
Denise K on May 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine last spring and it has leaves and blossoms--nearly finished flowering and we are in 5A (Madison WI). We had a pretty mild winter (not too many days below 0) and it came through well. Good luck to you.

Fingerlakes Super Hardy Peach
I just ordered 2 Fingerlakes Super Hardy Peach trees. I owned these trees before and they were one of two varieties that managed to have peaches on every year. I had them for many years before they succumb to the peach tree bore. When they started bearing I had peaches every year and I can't say that about many other varieties. They are sweet, juicy, nice color, and don't get brown after being sliced. Just a very nice peach to have. A good reliable producer and a treat to have in your back yard.

A Good Choice
The variety has been worth the choice. We have had 3 other varieties (Redhaven, Elberta and Reliance). The Fingerlakes has been less prone to Brown Spot and survived 2 straight winters with temps below -10F. Lost several trees of the other varieties to those winters, even though most were more established than the Fingerlakes.

Fingerlakes dwarf peach
Our little tree grew well it's first season in my yard, made it through the winter with no loss of branches. This spring, i saw the first blossoms. While I will probably remove all fruit this year to give the root system more time to strenthen, It is looking good!

Surprised
This little scamp was advertized to bring fruit in 4 years - to our surprise, it has 7 peaches on it in the 2nd year. To be sure, the tree and peaches are small, but we are happy with it and no we don't expect edible peaches out of the second year.

Fingerlakes Super Hardy Peach
Ordered the Fingerlakes Super Hardy Peach last spring. This spring it came back strong and had one blossom. Always pleased with Stark Bros. quality. Thank you!

Arrived in very nice shape. Now, in its second year, I have a huge number of small peaches on it. Fortunately, it has survived Ohio's bizarre late frosts this year. It's a tough little tree, and productive. We'll see how they taste later!

Peaches are hard to grow in my area
This tree does well compared to other peaches. Plan to put the tree on a site that is sloped to drain the cold air away during colder nights, but also guarded from the cold winter winds. The growth of the tree is prolific and so I keep up with the pruning to get the shape I like-wide and flat.I usually get peaches every other year, due to weather.

Curl susceptible
StarkBros sent a top quality tree as usual. The variety grew well in year one. In year two in my no spray orchard the tree is showing signs of peach leaf curl. It is not horribly infected but the Reliance peach next to it is curl- free. The Finger Lakes SH is precocious. There are several peaches developing on the tree in year two.The spring was cold and wet with late frost so this is good. However the Reliance peach planted next to it and of the same age is absolutely loaded with fruit. The first winter was mild so I can't say anything about the cold hardiness of the variety. I won't be able to say anything about fruit quality until the fall. Reliance is reported to have inferior fruit quality but at least right now it is proving to be the best of the four cold hardy peach varieties I have tried from StarkBros. (Reliance,Finger Lakes SH, Intrepid, and Contender).

little tree was healthy with great root system.
The only thing Id like to see is instructions on how to care for this tree. How to prune and when to prune, as well as is the tree 1st year ok to let it produce fruit or should i wait until the 2nd year. The tree was healthy , like i said, and i am looking forward its sweet reward.
