It's a harder variety to find, an excellent fruit for canning, and self pollinating. Here are some photo's of the tree after two years. Great purchase! Check out midamerica compost's blog for pics.

I have another Hale Haven tree and it is the best peach producer and sweeter and larger than most. Very hearty for my area!

do nectratine and plum trees cross pollinate with hale haven peach trees?
Joyce B on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, they do not because they are different species. Only another variety of peach can pollinate a Hale Haven peach.

I've been familiar with this peach for quite a few years. It was just a few years back that I had the honor of planting my own. This past summer, {2016} I picked my first crop. They were, as I remembered. Large, full of juice, and like the July Elberta, as peach tasting as a peach could want. If you don't have a couple of these, you need to indulge.

Don't know what they feed these peach trees...
I purchased along with this tree another Peach 3 Apple, to pair, and two cherry trees. Out of all of those trees, the two Peach have done phenomenally well! They are huge! With blossoms all over them this spring I am pleased to recommend this tree from Stark Brothers.

Great, tough little tree
The Hale Haven Peach I planted last year has grown beautifully and should be
ready for shape training this season. I was astonished at the wonderful growth rate and caliper it put on, when another peach died after 1 season in that spot.
It did have some canker, which I treated and all looks fine now. We've had some pretty wild weather up here in southern Maine and this tree breezed right through it. My other Starks fruit trees are doing well, with some fruiting already. They have gained enough caliper that I didn't need to stake them for this winter!

Hale Haven
Not doing well at all. Very late sprouting out and only got 3 leaves. Still only has 3 leaves (not branches........LEAVES) on the whole tree. Doubt it will survive another winter. Not impressed at all.
