Peach Redhaven

Peach Redhaven


Description: 'Redhaven' peaches are renowned for their deliciously sweet and tangy flavor, making them ideal for fresh eating, baking, canning, and freezing. The fruit typically has a vibrant red blush over a yellow background, and its flesh is yellow, juicy, and freestone, meaning the flesh easily separates from the pit. 'Redhaven' peaches are known for their firm texture, making them easy to handle and transport. The tree itself has an attractive appearance, with a rounded growth habit and abundant pink flowers in spring.

Size: 'Redhaven' peach trees typically grow to a moderate size, reaching heights of 15 to 20 feet (4.5 to 6 meters) and spreads of 12 to 15 feet (3.7 to 4.6 meters) at maturity. However, individual trees may vary in size depending on growing conditions, climate, and pruning practices. 'Redhaven' peach trees have a rounded growth habit with a dense canopy of foliage.

Best Growing Zones: 'Redhaven' peach trees thrive in regions with warm, temperate climates and are commonly grown in USDA hardiness zones 5 through 8. They require a certain number of chilling hours (hours of cold temperatures during dormancy) to set fruit properly, making them suitable for regions with cold winters. 'Redhaven' peaches are relatively tolerant of a range of growing conditions, including heat, drought, and poor soil.

Soil and Sun Requirements: 'Redhaven' peach trees prefer well-drained soil with good fertility and adequate moisture retention. They thrive in full sun exposure, which is essential for promoting vigorous growth, flowering, and fruiting. Adequate sunlight also helps enhance the sweetness and flavor of the fruit. 'Redhaven' peach trees are relatively tolerant of a variety of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soils, as long as they are well-drained.

Maintenance: 'Redhaven' peach trees require regular pruning and maintenance to ensure healthy growth and fruit production. Prune as needed to remove dead, diseased, or overcrowded branches and to maintain the desired shape and size. Thinning out excessive fruit clusters can help prevent branches from becoming weighed down and promote larger, higher-quality fruit. 'Redhaven' peach trees may benefit from an annual application of balanced fertilizer in early spring to provide essential nutrients for healthy growth and fruiting.
