Home-Grown Delicious Peaches
The Red Haven Peach is consistently the best tasting peach in any supermarket.
Now, instead of making a trip to the grocery store, you can just walk to your backyard for delicious peaches!
Red Haven Peach Trees grow very rapidly, and give you an abundance of fruit quickly.
Our trees are pruned back and trained to develop a healthy branching structure. This process takes more work and an extra year, but the difference you experience is dramatic.
In fact, some peach trees are already producing fruit in our nursery!
Red Haven peach trees are normally planted in pairs so they can pollinate each other. This pollination causes your trees to produce more fruit. We recommend cross-pollinating your Red Haven with the Elberta Peach Tree.
Most nurseries sell tall, skinny stems with no branches - these are referred to as 'whips'. They can take several years to fruit and will generally be less productive when mature. These trees are also disease resistant and adaptable, meaning they survive many environments that would kill other trees.
Full of flavor ... including a pleasing aftertaste! Great for snacks, meals or desserts.
With proper care, you will be able to start picking peaches after the first season, or as soon as the first year under optimal conditions.
Not only are they full of flavor, but they are also HUGE!
Red Haven Peaches ripen in June.
Red Haven Peach Tree Pollination
Red Haven Peach Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Red Haven Peach Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

very healthy trees
planted them the day I got them and here it is a month later and almost November and leaves still remain on trees. Great packaging arrived without any damage.
Received my Red Haven Peach tree fast! It was wrapped very good and appeared to be in good shape. Leaves were shiney and it looked to be in good health. I put it in the ground the next day in a place where I thought it would get plenty of sun. We figure we won't see any fruit for a couple seasons and we have our fingers crossed.
Red Haven heaven
Well packaged quick shipment arrived as described. Good root ball in plastic pot. Nice tree lots of branches and new growth. Can't wait until next spring.
Amazing Third Year!
The first year this tree was small but without peaches however it was very healthy. The second year saw the tree grow quickly and it had 4 peaches which the squirrels got two and we got the other two. They were small but delicious - juicy and sweet. This is the third year and it is over 20 feet tall with peaches everywhere. They are ripening and I hope we get some before the squirrels do.
Arrived in pretty good shape!
Was very pleased that the tree began putting on new leaves within a few days. Looking forward to next spring and fruit from our yard.
Planting & Care
The Red Haven Peach tree (also known as “Prunus persica 'Redhaven”) is famous for its lovely pink flowers that bloom in the spring and its succulent yellow fruit and golden fall foliage. Red Haven Peach trees are ready for harvest in mid to late fall depending on your area. These plants are best grown in zones 5 through 9 and make wonderful shade trees for your landscape. These peach trees reach a height of 15 feet and a width of 10 feet so you can plant them about 20 feet apart. The red Haven is a self-pollinating tree so you will get fruit with just the one but will have a much higher fruit yield with two of them planted within 30 feet of one another.
Location: Plant your Red Haven Peach tree in well-drained soil in a location where it will receive full sun (at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day). Heavy winds and early frosts can damage the blossoms, so be sure to protect your tree by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.
Planting Instructions: Select an area where your soil drains well and the Red Haven Peach Tree will receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day.
1) Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Amend the soil around the hole with compost to ensure the tree has proper drainage.
2) Place your tree inside the hole making sure it is sitting straight and that the graft is 2 inches above the soil line.
3) Cover the roots with soil, watering occasionally as you go along to remove any air pockets that may have formed. Gently pat the soil down until the roots are completely covered.
Watering: Keep the soil around your Red Haven Peach Tree moist, but not saturated. Keeping the roots too wet can cause rot damage to the roots. Typically watering once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for a couple of hours is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again. During times of extreme heat, your tree may need additional water. Yellowing of the leaves is a sign of over watering while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of under watering.
Fertilization: After your tree has been in the ground for 6 weeks, apply 1 lb. of a balanced fertilizer formula such as 12-12-12. In addition, apply ¾ lb. of fertilizer in the Spring before the tree pushes out new growth. Repeat this in the Summer and Fall as well.
Pruning: Your Red Haven Peach tree will need to be pruned the first two years in order to maintain an open center shape and encourage fruit production. Prune your tree in late winter or early spring using pruning shears and making your cuts at a 45-degree angle. Trim away any broken/dead branches and any that are criss-crossing by making your cut right below the dead wood. To achieve the open center shape, prune your tree so that the center section has only two or three main branches that will receive plenty of sunlight.
Pests: Check your tree regularly for insects and diseases. Caterpillars can form nests (egg sacs) on the tree which should be picked off immediately and spray your tree with a horticultural oil or an insecticide. Fungus can be treated by spraying a fungicide on the tree while it’s blooming.
Tips: Once your tree begins to fruit, thin your peaches out to allow each peach to have 8 inches in space to grow and mature properly. Thinning out your peaches will help to increase your overall production. Peaches on the top and outside of the tree will likely be ready to pick first. They will be fully ripe when there is no green left on the skin and they come off with a slight twist.
