Prunus persica 'Glohaven'
The Glohaven peach is a large, nearly round, uniform peach with very little fuzz. Its skin color is mostly red with a goldn background. The flesh is yellow and is a favorite for canning and freezing because it resists browning. Tree is vigorous, productive and hardy. It ripens right on the heels of Redhaven.
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.
Almost all peaches are self-fertile and require no pollinators. They will set heavy crops on single trees, which need heavy and aggressive thinning early in the season for best fruit size. Maintain good vigor in peaches by pruning every year, and fertilizing moderately. Aim for 1-3 feet of new growth a year. Fertilize early in the season, so that growth is well hardened off before fall and winter cold weather.
