Halehaven was well known as an excellent canning and freezing peach in its day. The fruit is large and orangish yellow with a deep crimson blush. It has a tough skin and the flesh is sweet, juicy, frm and tender. The tree is hardy and a consistent producer. It ripens about three weeks after Redhaven or a couple weeks before Elberta.
Halehaven came from the famous peach breeding program of Dr. Stanley Johnston in Michigan, who introduced and bred most of the famous "Haven" series. It was introduced in 1932 and still is commercially produced in some areas of the country in limited quantities.
