Cold-hardy. Freestone. Ripens in mid August. Self-pollinating. May be covered by U.S.P.P. #12357 or other patents.

Beautiful delicious peach that is cold hardy. Planted this tree where we used to live and had nice big peaches in a couple of years. Tolerant to late spring frosts. Looking forward to planting again in our new location!

We seem to be plagued with late frosts in our area. I am in hopes that Intrepid will allow us to get peaches, as the peaches in the store are very disappointing.

Hardiness zone, disease resistance and early ripening.

Peaches are my personal favorite fruit and we are up to about 20 trees. This looks like a great one, so it has to be next.

Best peach for cold country
This has been the only peach that we have been able to grow here. We have very cold/long winters(-30 for weeks) the tree grows fast and has beautiful pink blossoms in the the spring. The peaches are wonderful and can or feeze well. This is the best peach period for cold areas.

THE BEST TREE EVER
I live in mid-Missouri and these trees do well. Right now they are 2 1\2 years old and are already 8+ft tall they have quite a few little peaches (hurray!). Unlike all the other trees they have ABSOLUTELY no problem. No bugs. No fungus. Nothing! Which is really important to me because i try to go Organic.
By the way, despite we had a lot of weird cold weather none of the blossoms seemed to be effected. The blossoms were beautiful!
Cannot wait to eat one!

Intrepid Peach
My dwarf Intrepid Peach trees grew a lot their first season (2015). In March 2016, I pruned the trees to 6 main branches on 2 levels. The trees bloomed in April but the weather discouraged fruit set (thankfully since they probably shouldn't bear for at least another year.) The trees are doing really well.

I am interested in getting advice on 2 issues: watering and pest control. Using the Netafim drip system, the trees are watered 3 days/wk. I have not taken any pest control measures so far.

Intreped
My Intrepid Peach truly is. It has to be in order to grow at 6200' above sea level and survive our horrible winds. Not only did it grow, it blossomed! After just one year it is 18 inches taller and loaded with beautiful pink blossoms. Remarkable! Peaches in Wyoming!

So Far So Good
Got this tree in the mail..typical "stick", put it in the ground last year and it's taken off like there's no tomorrow. First year in the ground, it already doubled in size and leafed out nicely. This is the second year in the ground now, and I already have 5 or 6 peaches that are growing on it. Very impressed and looking forward to what next year will bring in comparison

Slow to Get Moving
Last year I bought three fruit trees - this is the only one to do simply anything! It has been really slow to do much of anything at all - last year the leaves were teeny tiny and did not mature. I have high hopes that this year will see a difference. Not sure why Stark Bros. trees are underperforming for me this time around but I simply cannot afford to waste more money trying their products. Trees purchased years ago are real winners but last year - nothing. So sorry.

Intrepid Peach
Bought the tree in April of 2015 as a bare-root stock. Planted it right away. It leafed out soon and has has thrived ever since. It bloomed this year and looks like it has peaches on it. Amazing!!!

Yummy!!
This is a great flavorful peach of firm texture and delicate skin. Great eating or for pie. Plant different species to cross pollinate and get a better yield.
Because of the cold in northern Illinois, we do not get peaches every year so when we do, we value them especially.

Nice tree!
This is the first full year in the ground for this peach tree and it is a sturdy, vigorous tree. It set a lot of fruit, but because it is still so young, most of them fell off and I removed the rest. I'm really looking forward to next year's crop. I'm sure the peaches will be delicious!
