When it comes to growing peaches, the mark of a winner is the diversity of the areas where they can grow.

The Contender Peach fits that bill like few others. With excellent cold hardiness and tolerance to the occasional late spring frosts, itís one of the few peach varieties that will flourish in northern regions. Tons of amazing blooms will burst onto the scene, ushering in the spring season with vivid pinks sure to brighten any landscape.

The Taste of a True Champion

In a short time, large velvety peaches will emerge from the Contenderís branches like natureís work of art. Picture a mostly water-colored red, splashed over an orange canvas. The succulent, ripe peaches drip with each juicy bite. One taste and youíll know why the Contender is considered the most flavorful, fresh eating peach available. Unlike other peach varieties, this hardy tree produces a reliably delicious fruit that wonít go brown on you before its time.

Convenience Makes the Contender a Great Choice

The stature of the Contender Peach Tree gives it another advantage over other fruit trees. At full maturity, it will not exceed 15 feet in height. That means more planting options in your garden or landscape and fruit thatís easier to reach when ready to pick. Care is a breeze as well. Just make sure to plant in full sun and use well drained, organic soil. Throughout the diverse regions across the country, your Contender will thrive in a variety of locations.

It's Easy to Plant your Contender Peach Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Contender Peach Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Contender Peach Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Contender Peach Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
