Prunus persica 'Early Redhaven'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

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.

A Little History about Early Redhaven Peach

Early Redhaven did not come from the MSU program like Redhaven, but was discovered in Washington as a "sport" of Redhaven. Grandpa's Washington nursery friends recognized its potential and introduced it, and Grandpa soon favored it over another Redhaven sport from Canada that he also grew. He always felt it set better crops, was prettier, and tasted better.
