How much fruit can I expect from this variety?
Stephanie S on May 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: With proper care and feeding, you can expect a little less than a bushel from each tree at maturity.
I can't find what kind of peach tree this is. Is it a golden gem or el dorado?
Moira G on May 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is a Stark?? exclusive, and is neither a Golden Gem nor an El Dorado. Here is the information directly from the patent: "The new and distinct variety of peach tree originated at LeGrand, Calif. through the hand pollination during 1974 of an unnamed nectarine seedling No. 16K275 with pollen from an unnamed peach seedling No. 54P105."

Great Peach Tree
I've had my miniature peach tree for 7 years. The tree produced 70 lbs of the most beautiful and best tasting peaches anyone ever had. This tree is amazing!
I also have a Redhaven peach tree ,July Burbank peach tree and miniature nectartine tree--All have done amazing! These are amazing trees.

Miniature Peach
This is my first full year growing the peach and is it is growing well. I was surprised that it grew half a dozen small peaches, although they didn't have the finest flavor. I'm still impressed with it.

Stark Sensation Miniature Peach
Both trees flowered heavily & set fruit. I am very happy with these trees. I ordered them because of one I picked up at Starks, on the late season "close-out" table about 8 yrs. ago. It has been an incredible producer every year, living in a pot.

Stays Compact with Great Peaches!
I really like this peach tree.......I wanted a tree that I could plant in the ground (not in a pot as shown in the picture) that would stay compact, produce nice flowers in the spring and peaches in the summer.......This tree works perfect for that function.......I have grown it before and it tops out around 6 or 7 feet, looks great and produces good peaches!!.....Love it.

Lovely Little Tree
This was a lovely little tree when it bloomed. Unfortunately, The large pot I had it in did not drain well and when we got the heavy rains, the pot would flood and I had to keep bailing it. The tree ended up dieing from too much water. I love all of the Stark fruit trees and have planted them for many years, with very good results. Looking forward to trying this one again when it is available.

Didn't make it through the first winter
Very disappointed. Says it will grow in zone 4. It didn't make it through the first winter. I bought it in Spring 2015, it didn't leaf out at all in Spring 2016.

Mini peach
One year and the beautiful little tree had 20 peaches.
I was able to eat two peaches and they were great! You'll have to ask the squirrels and rabbits how the rest were. Next year I will protect the peaches.

I love this tree
I've had this tree for several years. It is about 5 foot tall and wide now. The blossoms are beautiful and easy to access to thin. It produced a good crop last year despite drought conditions. The peaches have a good flavor. It is easy to spray and harvest. Last summer we had thousands of beetles attack our backyard orchard. This tree was easy to protect with a small mesh net. The semi-dwarf size was a different story.
