STELLAR® - Risingstar® Peach
Prunus persica 'STELLAR® - Risingstar® Peach'
- Hardiness Zone & More
Risingstar® ripens about 5-7 days ahead of Red Haven and is a large, round, freestone peach with an 80% rich, red color. Flesh is yellow with a pleasing sugar/acid flavor balance. The tree is spreading and very hardy, with resistance to bacterial spot and canker.
Grandpa was good friends with the breeder of all the Stellar® peaches, who was one of the most prominent peach growers in Michigan. All the Stellar® varieties have "star" in their name for a reason. They are very hardy and beautiful peaches.
