The Best of Two Varieties for First-Year Fruit
Why Redskin Peach Trees?
A descendent of two favored varieties, the Red Haven and Elberta, the Redskin Peach Tree combines the best of both into one premium fruit producer. With the Redskin, you get a top-choice, fresh and firm peach, along with juicy texture that packs a sweet, tangy punch.
Another benefit? This self-fertile dwarf variety fits almost anywhere in your landscape due to its manageable size. And whether you use your tree’s peaches for canning, baking or eating freshly-picked, they retain their flavor.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- peach tree
The tree arrived in a timely manner. I had no planting issues and it fruited within a few months. It's a young tree, but I ended up with 6 juicy, large size peaches. I can't imagine what it will do as it gets older. To be honest, I've never tasted a peach as sweet as the ones this tree produced. I am ordering another one to plant near it. And maybe a third one. That's how delicious they are!
Been very happy so far
just planted them ,however they are looking great ,can wait till they start producing peaches
My Redskin peach tree arrived yesterday and is going in the ground in just about an hour. I had a Red Haven peach prior to this and it produced beautifully for many years but got to be a little too tall. It died of thirst one-year (I live in the high desert and I was gone for a prolonged period, poor tree, the assigned caretaker didn't know how to water properly) and now I'm ready to start again because I miss those peaches so much. I'm hoping that the height of this tree is a little more manageable. It arrived in beautiful shape and it is so much healthier looking than I had expected. I am very impressed.
I'm in Texas and we have HARSH hot summers. I was really worried about Miss Peaches (that's her tree name) as she wilted and withered away from the moment she arrived and all summer long. Her leaves became crispy brown and discolored yellow during her natural fruit production season. I thought she might be sick! But after 3 long months of 100+ weather the heat finally broke and it rained for a few days. After the rain Miss Peaches surprised me with new leaves all over her little branches indicating that she would be pulling through after all! I am very hopeful that she continues to pull through and thrive. I will come back with an update once she is crawling and walking on her own.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your tree in well-drained soil and in a full sun area (receiving at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day). Be sure to protect your tree from heavy winds by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree and 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. Finally, water the planting site and mulch to help retain moisture in the soil.
2. Watering: Keep the soil around your Redskin Peach moist. 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.
Tip: Yellowing of the leaves is a sign of overwatering while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of underwatering.
3. Fertilizing After your tree has been in the ground for 6 weeks, apply 1 pound of a balanced fertilizer formula such as 12-12-12. In addition, apply nearly three-quarters of that amount in the spring before new growth. Repeat this second process in the summer and fall as well.
4. Pruning: The Redskin 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.
Tip: Once your tree begins to fruit, thin your peaches out. 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. Peaches will be fully ripe when there is no green left on the skin and they come off with a slight twist.
