A Reliable Peach Harvest, Even in the Coldest Regions!
Grow a healthy harvest of peaches all the way up to zone 4! That's right, peaches aren't just for Southerners. You can grow your own harvest of Reliance Peaches in the coldest parts of the United States.
Reliance Peaches are the cold-hardiest variety of peach. Some cold-hardy varieties are sensitive to fluctuating seasons, but the Reliance Peach remains hardy even in early and late freezes. You can feel confident knowing that an early or particularly cold winter for your region won't harm your sturdy peach tree.
After all, it's called Reliance Peach for a reason. There are a few varieties of cold-hardy peaches, but none compares to the tolerance and durability of the Reliance Peach. You'll get a reliable harvest of 15-30 lbs. each year!
The peaches are absolutely delicious. Some peaches are overly tart or don't strike the balance between sweet and acidic, but Reliance Peaches are sweet and mild without being overpowering. And these medium size peaches have the firm texture expected of a perfect peach. They’re freestone too, which means you can easily remove the stone inside without effort.
A dwarf tree, you'll love the way it fits into your landscape. Growing to only 10. ft, the Reliance Peach looks great in every yard. Large, dark green foliage hangs from the spreading branches, and in the summer they offer a perfect contrast against the yellow and red peaches that you can harvest in August.
Stunning displays of spring flowers promise a bountiful summer harvest. In the spring, you'll find the branches covered in bright pink blooms that have a deep pink center. The fragrant flowers, as the harbinger of spring, will also become the harbinger of a healthy harvest of peaches. You'll know when you see the radiant flowers, you'll be seeing sweet peaches in the next few months.
A late harvest means you can extend summer a little longer. Welcome in autumn with sweet, summery peaches that you picked in August. Fill your winter home with the warm smell of peach cobblers and pies. Or, can your peaches and enjoy the refreshing taste in spring!
Are you a novice fruit grower? The Reliance Peach is a great starter tree. Because the harvest is so reliable, it's easy to learn as it grows. The more skilled you are at pruning and pest control, the bigger your harvest will be. But the reliability of this tree gives some room to learn if you're not confident in those areas yet.
Is the Reliance Peach for you? Reliance Peach trees are perfect for you if you have wanted to grow a fruit tree, but have been intimated by the effort. They're also excellent for you if you live in a cold area or high elevation where summer fruit has difficulty growing. Reliance Peaches do need 1000 chill hours (below 45) to produce fruit, so this tree isn’t for you if you have unreliable winters.
Feel the pride and joy of growing your very own peaches! It doesn't matter if you're on the east or west coast, or somewhere in between, you can grow a Reliance Peach tree and enjoy your own harvest of sweet, juicy peaches within the next few years. Producing fruit in as little as 2 years, don't delay the experience! Order yours today!
Reliance Peach Tree Pollination
Reliance Peach Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Reliance Peach Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Well they looked nice when I received them. Allot of leaves fell off. I'm hoping they will make it. PS when I received them allot of dirt was out of planter it almost looked like a bare root tree. I think Fed ex was to rough with them!!
New Peach Tree
It came and looks great! I hope that it grows well and I get fruit from it soon. It was easy to plant and it was pruned nicely.
The tree arrived in perfect condition. It was larger than I thought and it already had some leaves. It is doing incredibly well covered with leaves and what I think are buds. I am not counting on peaches this year but we shall see!
