Contender Peach Tree

Cold hardy and tolerant to a late-spring frost, the Contender Peach is well suited for the north. Flush with pink spring blossoms which attract bees, this very juicy freestone peach ripens in mid-August. Velvety orange and red skin with sweet, yellow flesh, the firm peaches are extremely tasty eating out of hand fresh from the tree. 

The Contender Peach is self pollinating, which means you will enjoy a crop when planted alone. However, crops will be greater when multiple trees are planted within 50 feet of each other. Consider planting a small orchard of 3 or 5 trees, you'll be eating peaches and may even have some left over to share. When planting a small grove, you can plant the Contender Peach trees as close as 12 to 15 feet apart. The Contender Peach tree will typically bear fruit within 2-4 growing seasons.
