A Stark Bro's Exclusive!

Large, luscious and nearly fuzzless. This variety is so distinct, it was the first fruit tree to be granted a plant patent in 1932. Its rosy-cheeked freestone peaches are huge and flavorful. Each fruit can serve up to nearly one pound of sweet golden flesh. Great fresh or canned. Originates from Xenia, Illinois in 1928. Freestone. Ripens in late August. Best pollinators: another peach variety, such as Burbank™ July Elberta.

I have two dwarf georgia peach trees already in my yard. Will these work as pollinators?
Dennis on Oct 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. If they are different varieties (for example, if they're not both Redhaven) and their bloom time is similar, they should successfully pollinate one another.
Is the pollen from the cultivar sterile?
Adam N on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's not sterile, since it may cross-pollinate with other peach trees; it just won't pollinate itself (unlike most other varieties of peach trees).

Sweet, large, fast growing and heavy bearing
Of all the varieties of peaches I planted , overall this is my favorite peach. All the neighbors want to buy this one. It is great eaten fresh, cooked in pies and frozen. Nothing compares to this peach cut up, chilled and poured over a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream. Also great in homemade ice cream.

I planted a peach tree two years ago and yeah I know I need two but I could find another type I wanted locally, So I went online and ordered this one. I planted it last year and it took off. It is now bigger than the one I planted the year before and shaped a lot nicer! It was loaded with blooms this spring!!!

Hal-Berta Giant
I've had experience with this variety of peach in the past. When I added more July Elbertas, I decided to pollinate with this one. Mine have been in the ground where I live, for 15 months now. They already have fruit on them. Can't miss with this one. R.L. Sickler ll

Stark HalBerta Giant Peach
I am training this tree as I live in zone 4 and have to cover the tree each fall.
In general Starks is the only mail-order firm I will order my fruit trees/bushes/vines from. I always get top quality, large healthy plants from Starks. When I'm asked where I get my fruit trees from, I always try to get people to order from Strak. It is well worth it to order from Stark.
