Cresthaven Peach

Prunus persica 'Cresthaven'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

The Cresthaven peach is a firm, yellow to red highly colored variety for late season. The fruit is yellow-fleshed, freestone, and shows considerable red around the pit. This is a vigorous, productive tree that has fair tolerance to bacterial spot. Good for canning and freezing. While many varieties have better color than Cresthaven, its flavor is one of the best and many people raise it still for farm markets.

All of the "Haven" peaches were bred in Michigan by the famous Dr. Stanley Johnston, who Grandpa knew and respected. Grandpa said that if it hadn't been for Stanley, he probably never would have raised as many peaches as he did. Grandpa always considered himself a "peach" grower, rather than an "apple" grower.
