Timothy B on Jul 31, 2016
Just a few days ago, my friend and I were talking about some of the BEST peaches ever and the Redhaven came up. And.... because of the heart touching story she told about these delicious peaches referring to memories of her "nannie", I felt it would be a perfect surprise, in memory of her grandmother.

To be a companion to my Fingerlake peach. So far the Fingerlake has been more productive, but the Redhaven has larger peaches and withstood a late frost in full bloom this year. Very sweet peaches.
MARILYN P on May 26, 2016
I was looking for a peach tree to round out my backyard orchard. I ended up with the dwarf supreme version as the standard was sold out. The Redhaven is well known, it seems to tolerate Michigan weather and it is supposed to tast good.
Ted Timmis on May 24, 2016

Reviews were good for our technically zone 5 area. One review listed as zone 4-5 and that they have had RedHavens for 30 years. We have been looking for a good peach that will survive here for a long time. Bonus: late bloom (avoiding late frost), freestone.

I have grown this variety in the past. The fruits were large, sweet, freestone and very productive. I feel this is the best of the Haven type peaches and fairly winter hardy for north central Illinois.

When it blooms how long do u wait to spray for bugs?
J S on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not spray any insecticides until petal fall. I don't want to take a chance of hurting any pollinators when there may be a "late blossom" on the tree. You may want to see if there are any organic sprays that you can safety use during the bloom period.
Will this fruit within the first year?
Linda F on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Good morning Linda,
I also have other peach tress that are 3 and 4 years old. Peach trees do not
fruit the 1st year. It generally takes 3-4 years depending on weather and how well
you take care of it. My older trees were going to fruit last year but a late freeze
killed all my beautiful flowers. That's nature! Hopefully this year!!, Hope I helped you
Sincerely, Dan
My peach tree is starting it's 2nd year here and has blooms. Should I pick the blooms off?
Mary M on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Mary
It would be fine to let some buds grow, but if you were to pull them. The plants energy would go into roots and growth. This season.
Short term sacrifice , for long term gain,,
Good luck Adam
When should I expect my new peach tree to leaf-out after planting in the spring (zone 6)?
Hannah B on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We planted our peach tree in August in zone 6 and it wintered over well and started getting leaves in March of following year.. if you planted in spring I would think you would have leaves within a couple months of planting. Give plenty of water once chance of freeze has past.
Can this be grown in a pot in 6a zone?
Ed S on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ed,
It can be grown in a pot for the first two years outdoors until you can find a good planting spot for it. Peach trees need to be left outdoors year round because they need so many chill hours to produce a crop. When planted outside it will need to be planted in a sunny & well drained place for it to produce a bountiful crop. If it produces a crop at all in a pot it will be extremely top heavy and cause itto fall over easily. If planted in a pot it will become root-bound very quickly. If you have a place to plant it outdoors I would do that as soon as you receive the tree(s) and forget the pot. It would be like any other tree if you planted it in a pot. Hope this helps and good luck. John in Illinois
My third year Red haven had a lot of fruit. I thinned about two-thirds off trying to maintain size but remaining fruit is still small a bit larger than a golf ball. Why might this have happened? No previous crop and good fertility.
John M on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: John M. your fruit will be small in size the first harvest or two. My Redhaven produced the first time this year and mine was smaller also. Just be sure to give it some nitrogen next February or March. I use 12-12-12 on all my fruit trees. When I first plant my trees I give them some root stimulator about 3 times between March 1st and the 1st of July. Your fruit will gradually increase in size as the tree ages. A peach tree is good for apprx 15 years. I plant new trees every 5 years.
Can I plant a semi-dwarf Red-haven peach tree in a container?

Will this peach still produce a small yield in semi-sun conditions (5-6hrs)? Looking to plant in a protected area withing a 30ft clearing in a canopy of maples. Thi
summittmann44 on Jul 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. "Full sun" is considered to be 6-8 hours a day, so it will be somewhat deficient. That will results in a slightly smaller yield and/or smaller fruit. Brown rot is more of a concern if the tree gets too much shade. Be sure you're on a spraying schedule to prevent that from happening.

I would recommend not planting close to pine trees as they seem to have an adverse effect on peaches in close proximity.

Best overall peach
Bought the Redhaven from Stark Bros in 2003. In 2008 it set so much fruit I had to thin it out. Between the tree dropping excess fruit, my thinning, and the fruit left on the tree, I counted fruit set over 600! Here in NE PA it ripens the first week in August. Great flavor, average size, freestone--excellent all around.

Great Looking Peach Tree
Planted a dwarf redhaven peach two springs ago, and the tree took off growing immediately the first season. Had a few blossoms and two peaches last year. LOADED with blossoms this spring. The late cold weather may get my crop, but this tree is sprouting new growth again and looks fantastic.

Red Haven Peach Tree
I ordered one Red Haven Peach Tree from you last spring. I was very nice size. It now has many blooms on it. I had to buy the second one this spring to put next to it. Hopefully a late frost won't hurt the blooms. Looking forward to a nice crop for many years to come. Thank You, John in Illinois.

Plant stock arrived in good condition and planted as directed fall 2015. Stock appears to have survived this winter and hope it comes out of dormancy in great shape.

Redhaven Peach
I received the Redhaven Peach tree last October, just in time for fall planting. A very healthy and robust tree, professionally pruned ready to plant. It wintered over very well and I see the buds are beginning to form/swell. I am looking forward to reap the reward of a bountiful harvest in due time. Thank you for your prompt service and delivery schedule. Again, a very nice, healthy tree.

Best Peach
My Dad planted a lot of Peach Trees and the Redhaven was my favorite and the favorite of most of his customers. Of Course, he planted the big trees on his farm, but I have better luck with the dwarfs in my yard. In the beginning, he tried a lot of different companies to get the best fruit trees. He found Stark Bros and never ordered from anybody else after that.

Excellent peach trees
I received my 4 Redhaven peach trees at home on Saturday. They were well boxed and professionally pruned. These trees should last my lifetime. I can't say enough about Stark Brothers trees. Just fantastic ! I even received the tre -prep fertilizer the same time. Will order again. Thanks Stark Brothers!
