This is my third time to buy this. The flavor is wonderful and they are virtually never mealy. We lost our second tree after only four years but it was due to our neglect during a drought, after it had produced a big crop. The first tree, a dwarf variety, would produce hundreds of large peaches, did not have trouble with diseases, and lived about 12 years. Its peaches won reserve champion at the county fair one year, too.

Love white peaches and prefer to grow my own fruits and vegetables. Dwarf and semi-dwarf trees are perfect for my back yard. My first order with this company so I'm hoping for the best.

very early to beat the brown fuzz. trying to be organic and spray as little as possible and only use environmentally safe sprays

Love white peach. Like that this is early variety. Also ordering a yellow peach as a late fruiting variety. Stretch out the growing season.

I currently have 3 peach trees: red haven, harmony, sunhigh. It seems like this variety might complement since it should ripen earlier than the rest. I'm not familiar with this "white peach." How does this peach compare on quality and taste? Thanks.
Jeff M on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Early white Giant is a reliable tree for fruit each year. I has a fruity flavor a little lighter than the Red Haven. Sugar/sweetness content is high. The only problem we have had, is that it puts on more fruit than the branches can handle. Early White Giant is a large peach, often 4 inches in diameter. If you decide to go with it, I would suggest to monitor the weight on the branches and thin accordingly. We have enjoyed ours for several years.
My early white giant peach tree was just diagnosed by our extension service with oriental fruit moth. I purchased this bareroot tree from Start Brothers this past spring. It is growing extremely well but I noticed some of the tips of the new growth had turned brown. I cut that new branch about three inches from the terminal growth and to my dismay , found a tiny worm in the hollow stem. What do I do about this pest?? I've been spraying with Bonide Citrus fruit and orchard spray. about eery 10 -14 days. Is there something else I can use and when do I use it?? HELP!! Peggy K.
MARGARET K on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I just discovered I have this same pest, and I???ve been doing a lot of research on how to combat it. The tricky thing is timing: the only way you can successfully kill the caterpillars is before they???ve bored into the branch, so you have to time any spraying to catch them before they do that. Unfortunately, there isn???t an easy answer to this. All the resources I???ve found suggest to set up a pheromone trap (you can find them by googling) specific to the Oriental fruit moth and wait until you catch your first adult. Once you do, you start counting degree days, which is just a fancy name for the days with temps between 45 and 90F (the temps are specific to the pest). All the sprays are then timed based on the number of degree days (DD). It is the timing that is apparently more important than exactly what you are spraying with. I???m personally planning on using Dipel, which uses Bt. It sounds complicated, but it???s really no more complicated than watching a trap and then counting days from there. I???d do some googling to find more specifics as to how many DD to wait between sprays, but you do have to do it several times. This nasty little bugger can apparently have up to five life cycles per season!
Is the Stark Early White Giant Peach a late blooming variety that is less likely to be affected by late frosts?
Alistair H on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Stark?? Early White Giant is an early bloomer and early ripening peach, as the name indicates. It is possible that it could be affected by a late frost, depending upon your growing zone and weather conditions.
It seems all of peach trees get (peach curl) not sure why?
sabrunos12 on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Peach leaf curl may have a high presence in your area. You should prune annually in the fall and use a copper-based fungicide as directed after you prune to help control the issue. You can also reach out to your local cooperative extension for more advice.

Good peach.
Early White Giant ripens here in zone 6 just before July. Because it's so early, it gets the jump on insects. Also usually ripens before the fungus can take ahold. I normally don't even spray mine and still get good peaches. Big and white, really good eating.

The Best
The only reason I grow peaches other than the Early White Giant is I do not want to have the best every time I eat a peach and end up taking it for granted. There is no better peach.

Delicious, white giant peach
The white giant peach is the sweetest peach in our orchard. The white flesh literally pours juice down your chin. My mother in law before she passed asked for one for a bedtime snack, I gave it to her and she had peach juice all down the front of her night gown. She was in her 80's and said it was the best peach she had ever eaten. My wife sometimes chills the peach and adds just a little raw honey with it. That is just about as much delicious a person can take. We plucked the fruits off for two years so that we could let the tree use it's energy to develop. We had great fruit the third year. You will be very pleased with this one none better for fresh eating. Enjoy

Early White Giant Peach
Unlike many plant orders I have made online, my tree was much larger than I expected and in wonderful condition. I received it last Spring, planted it right away, watered it as needed and IT HAS A DOZEN PEACHES ON IT NOW! I am very pleased with this Stark Brothers peach tree.

Stark Early White Giant Peach
Early White Giant is a delicious peach, with large sweet white fruit. It is highly resistant to bacterial spot, which has been a problem in my orchard. Many years the fruit set is so heavy that the tree would benefit from thinning.

Love this Peach Tree!
This tree is only a year old and has at least 12 peaches. It was very pretty when it bloomed in the spring but we never thought we would have peaches the first year. Can't wait to taste them!

Stark White Giant Peaches are the best!
I planted one of these several years back on another property I owned at the time and everyone wanted my peaches. I think the taste is so much better than a yellow peach. I planted another one at my new property last spring and it has been growing by leaps and bounds and I can't wait to get a harvest from it.

Doing well
Survived the winter, tough for a peach in this area. Painted the trunk white to help slow the sap in the spring.
