Prunus persica ‘Redhaven’ – Yellow Peach – 7 gallon
Haven peaches were developed at Michigan State University’s South Haven Experiment Station, so you know they’re well adapted to northern growing conditions. The two most successful introductions have been ‘Cresthaven’ and ‘Redhaven’ – the latter is the most widely planted freestone peach variety in the world – it’s the peach by which all others are measured. ‘Redhaven’ is heavy-bearing, cold hardy and resistant to bacterial spot. It’s juicy, sweet and very tasty, just right for fresh eating, canning or freezing. It ripens in early mid-season, in our area around early August.
