The Red Haven peach is a beautiful red-over-yellow fruit, with yellow flesh that's firm, yet melting and delicious. Redhaven peach tree 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.  The Redhaven peach tree will ripen over an extended period of 6 weeks so you will not be overwhelmed when harvest season has arrived. Not for warm winters. The Red haven peach tree was developed in southwest Michigan with great expectations in the late 1930's.  Please see below for further information on our Red Haven peach trees for sale.

Basic idea for Pruning:  Most fruit trees should be pruned in frost-free periods mid to late winter. (apricots best after bud break) Remove most vertical branches and shorten side branches. Fruiting wood is best on horizontal to 45 degree limbs. Learn more...                                                             

 
Shipping Note:  Our fruit trees and berries are delivered to you bareroot during their winter dormancy from January through May depending on USDA zone. Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree. You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
