Redhaven peach is a beautiful red-over-yellow fruit, with yellow flesh that's firm, yet melting and delicious. Redhaven is an early season treat, a favorite in our orchard for eating, canning and freezing. Very productive, needs thinning, has never failed to set a crop for us even in rainy weather. Non-showy flowers. Not for warm winters. Developed in southwest Michigan with great expectations in the late 1930's.
